About this Event
+ Beginners’ / Intermediate level training for volunteer managers everywhere delivered on Zoom with Anita Jakhu +
Recent debates spearheaded by the Black Lives Matter movement have given greater significance to understanding and recognising inequalities and racial discrimination in society.
This workshop, delivered by Equality & Inclusion expert Anita Jakhu, will equip participants with the tools to improve their decision-making capabilities in the context of unconscious bias . It will take a take a honest and detailed look at how unconscious bias can negatively influence our everyday judgements and decision-making in a fun and interactive way. In addition, individuals will learn how to compensate for blind spots, such as our own cognitive bias and automatic judgements by looking at strategies to reduce unconscious bias and look at good practice tips.
Frontline staff, volunteers, and managers will benefit from developing their soft skills to lead in an increasingly diverse workplace and create more inclusive work environments.
Join us to gain an in depth understanding of unconscious bias, how it affects decision making, judgments and relationships in and out of the workplace and how we can minimise its impact. During the day we will:
- explore the concepts of equality, diversity, inclusion, and unconscious bias
- increase knowledge of legal responsibilities and duties
- examine the impact of unconscious bias (organisational and individual levels)
- outline types of unconscious bias
- explore strategies and techniques for reducing unconscious bias
- share good practice
At the end of the session, each participant will be asked to complete an individual action plan. It will consolidate learning and outline individual and collective steps to achieve a more inclusive working environment. This will be provided to each participant which they will take away and implement in their individual contexts.
Training is highly interactive, engaging and fast paced. It will use a combination of facilitator presentation, group discussions, visual aids, case studies and group exercises.
