Understanding and Tackling Unconscious Biases

We all have unconscious biases. They shape our behaviour and assumptions.

Unconscious biases are linked to subconscious prejudices we all adopt throughout our lives. It leads us to make unconscious, unfair assumptions about people simply based on their gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, religion, age, etc. Different from more obvious or clearer acts of discrimination, unconscious bias is much harder to identify and can be present even in people who are committed to equality.

Across human resources departments, talent selection, attraction, retention, evaluation and promotion processes are often conditioned by voluntary and involuntary biases. This pre-designed program was created to help HR leaders understand and overcome their own prejudices and support their teams and the wider business in achieving better D&I outcomes.

Module 1

Self knowledge

The first session will focus on giving an overview of what are unconscious biases and how they limit the HR processes. The participants will understand what are the dominant biases and how they can neutralize them.

Module 2

Inspiration

In this session we will go deeper. The participants will strengthen their knowledge on how to become an inclusive leader and create an inclusive culture and environment. They will learn what other organizations are doing, their good practices, success and failures.
