Managing Bias in the Workplace: Livestream Showcase 7 Oct 2021

managing bias: a free livestream showcasing training about getting to grips with unconscious bias in the workplace

“Enact’s sessions, using drama, brought day to day issues alive and made it real for people. We have received excellent feedback from delegates that this fresh approach really worked. It wasn’t about theories and principles, more about how Unconscious Bias influences everything we do. Overall a really effective and professional training event.” Oxford City Council

what to do about unconscious bias?

Most organisations know that Unconscious Bias ‘influences everything we do’ and that this has implications not just for their ability to embrace diversity and inclusion, but also for how well they do the fundamentals, like decision-making, recruitment, or people management.

But often there is a disconnect between ‘knowing’ and doing something positive about it. This partly explains why unconscious bias training has been receiving a bad press when it comes to its impact and value to organisations.

If your organisation wants to take effective steps to get to grips with Unconscious Bias, what it is, how it works, and what can be done about it, then our free live stream all about our innovative, experiential virtual training workshop is for you.

the programme

On Thursday 7 October 2021 we will be showcasing content from our Unconscious Bias virtual training and learning development programme via Zoom livestream.

In a 1½ hour ‘taster’ session, attendees will get to see extracts from the latest version of our ‘tried and tested’ approach, which has been delivered face-to-face to staff at all levels across the public and private sector, and which is now being successfully delivered online, too.

You’ll find out how we provide highly engaging, immersive learning experiences that blend drama, brain science and the latest interactive video content to bring Unconscious Bias to life and evoke feelings that open people to new ways of thinking and behaving so they can manage their own and others bias in the workplace.

The event will cover a wide range of content from our Unconscious Bias virtual workshops, including:

  • Peak moments – sharing impactful, memorable content that raises awareness and understanding of this powerful natural process and its implications in the workplace
  • Learning outcomes – explaining the full range of learning outcomes our training and learning development workshop delivers, from increased personal awareness, through brain science, to practical actions to manage bias
  • Tools of the trade – introducing a selection of innovative, cutting-edge technologies and experiential, drama-based training tools and techniques
  • User feedback – sharing evaluation results, client and user perspectives on this alternative approach to training and learning development

Please note, this isn’t a full training session. It’s an opportunity for Human Resources, Equality & Diversity, and Learning & Development professionals to try out elements of the programme, learn more about our work in this area, and to consider whether it’s something that they would be interested to run in their organisation.

what learners say

“My organisation has taken the next positive step to genuinely address inequality and racial disparities at the workplace.” Online Learner
“Good session to support raising awareness of own unconscious bias in order to be aware and begin to manage the bias and its effects on others.” Online Learner
“Since the training I have not stopped talking about Unconscious Bias with my friends and colleagues. It was really useful, and I hope it is extended to all the management staff too.” Face-to-face Learner
The interactive element [worked well], considering we were online.” Online Learner
It’s thought provoking and great insight to how we think, and react to limited information and how to manage those thoughts and reactions going forward.” Online Learner
I thought the trainer, the materials and the exercises were excellent. It’s one of the best courses I’ve attended for a long while. I have suggested it is mandatory for recruiting managers and recommended it to colleagues.” Face-to-face Learner
