Unconscious Bias & introduction to diversity

Make the unconscious conscious. Our biases are wired in to who we are as human beings; we cannot reduce them on demand as they happen naturally. What we can do however, is be aware of them and understand how they may be influencing our decisions without us even realising it.

Through our training we can introduce your organisation to the concept of unconscious bias and provide examples relative to your industry which challenge participants to think about their biases. We will provide general mechanisms/interventions for mitigating and reducing the effects of bias within the organisation. For smaller classes we can go into more detail for the areas of the organisation within which workshop attendees work.

Make the unconscious conscious. Our biases are wired in to who we are as human beings; we cannot reduce them on demand as they happen naturally.

Our biases are part of who we are, based on our cumulative life experiences and how we see the world. The human brain is lazy, and makes shortcuts based on stereotypes. What we can do however, is be aware of them and understand how they may be influencing our decisions without us even realising it.

“Unconscious bias refers to a bias that we are unaware of, and which happens outside of our control. It is a bias that happens automatically and is triggered by our brain making quick judgments and assessments of people and situations, influenced by our background, cultural environment and personal experiences”

Testimonial

“Eurostar have been working with EqualEngineers since 2017, and in this time Mark has helped us create, sense-check and roll-out our Inclusion & Diversity strategy for the business. This has been very well received, and has lead onto us using his expertise to deliver a full suite of training on an introduction to diversity & unconscious bias. Our executive management team to engineers to sales professionals and everyone in between have been put through the training. Demand was so strong that we have expedited the roll out across the wider business to include sessions in Europe.

Through Mark’s extensive network of speakers, we have gained access to speakers for our internal events, and have also benefitted from the careers fair provision offered by EqualEngineers through attending their London careers event.”
