The ability to identify, measure and manage unconscious bias presents a significant opportunity to make step changes in performance in organisations. We all have unconscious biases and as a result all of an organisation’s activities are vulnerable. For example: diversity/equality/inclusion initiatives, recruitment, employee development, talent management, marketing, sales, procurement, day to day operations in all departments, leadership, governance, compliance, strategic decision-making. The prize for reducing your vulnerabilities to unconscious bias is improved performance. The organisations who can best address unconscious bias will generate significant competitive advantage for themselves.
The workshop will guide you in understanding what unconscious bias is and how it creates vulnerabilities throughout your organisation, undermining your strategies, processes and resources. It will show you how to identify and measure unconscious bias and how to counter it effectively. The workshop follows PRM’s highly regarded, tried and tested practical format. This is designed to help you to take the most appropriate courses of follow-up action through understanding the implications and opportunities and using the right methods. Specifically, it will help you to:
Understand how unconscious bias works
Understand related risks from Stereotype Threat
Plan how to manage unconscious bias in your organisation
