Overview

This workshop will guide delegates in understanding what unconscious bias is and how it creates vulnerabilities throughout an organisation, undermining strategies, processes and resources. It will show you how to identify and gain an awareness of unconscious bias and how to counter it effectively.

In this interactive session, participants will learn how bias, which is embedded in human decision-making, can affect the business.
