Tuesday 17 November, 10am-12.30pm
Delivered by Equality and Diversity UK.
Unconscious or unintentional bias is widespread in the workplace and usually unrecognised. It is often based on outdated and irrational assumptions about the roles of BAME people, people with disabilities, men and women, peoples’ ages, sexuality, religion/belief at work.
It may manifest itself in language, behaviour and decisions that inhibit the recruitment and progression of skilled individuals. It usually means businesses are not acting in their own best interests by failing to make the most of all available talent.
Who is it for?
The session is specifically for decision-makers at venues in the South East network who are interested in understanding more about unconscious bias and how it can undermine organisational goals and strategies.
Groups are limited to 10 people. The session is free (delegate rate usually £195 each) for staff from South East venues in the network. The training is available for maximum 2 people per venue.
We strongly encourage staff from programming and marketing teams, as well as senior leadership.
We think it is important for decision-makers and programme curators to understand the impact our unconscious biases can have on policies, priorities and programmes, and how diversity can be an asset to business strength, development and engagement.
Places are limited and offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
If you’re interested in offering ‘in-house’ online unconscious bias training with Equality and Diversity UK for teams of up to 10 people from the same organisation, please get in touch with Steph at firstname.lastname@example.org.
