Unconscious Bias Showcase: Huddersfield

Showcasing drama-based training on Unconscious Bias

What it’s all about

Our innovative Unconscious Bias training has been successfully delivered in a wide range of organisations across the public and private sector. In partnership with Maxine Morris, we’re offering a free opportunity in January 2017 for you to see how we’ve been helping staff to learn more about their own biases, where they come from, why they exist, and the kinds of impact they have on everyone’s behaviour.

In this 2 ½ hour session, we’ll demonstrate examples of our innovative, digital and live, drama based experiential sessions to recognise the facts of human bias and take practical steps to challenge bias and build an inclusive workplace.

As ever, our focus is on making a real difference. This is a fantastic opportunity to see first-hand the impact of our approach.

A drama-based workshop

Our tried and tested approach utilises a dynamic blend of live drama with professional actors (they play roles, so delegates don’t have to), multimedia filmed resources, electronic voting systems (measuring success), and highly skilled facilitation.

It’s a highly interactive, powerful way to explore behaviours and will be of interest to anyone within Human Resources, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion or Learning & Development roles.

The learning outcomes

This showcase ‘taster’ session provides an insight into how we work with delegates in our workshops to:

  • Have a better understanding of what unconscious bias is
  • Identify behaviours that contribute to an exclusive working environment
  • Partake in experiential exercises that demonstrate personal bias at play
  • Gain theoretical understanding of the subject; recognise different types of bias, where it comes from and brain function
  • Gain strategies for helping to combat bias
  • Understand the various Implicit Association Tests (IAT) available and the benefits they might offer
  • Better understand the skills needed to have honest conversations
