By definition, decisions based on unconscious biases are not intentional acts. Rigorous research in the field of social psychology demonstrates that humans make judgements informed by a range of factors, many of which are outside of conscious control. Asserting an intention to be fair is not a safeguard against unconscious judgements.
This training day will use case studies and exercises to shift from an intellectual understanding of unconscious bias to personal and practice-based changes. The training will help delegates to be aware of the actions that they can take to reduce bias.
- An understanding of the mechanics of unconscious bias
- Knowledge of the impact of unconscious bias on particular social groups
- Awareness of how individual behaviour becomes contributory to patterns of inequality
- Knowledge of a rage of measures that can reduce the impact of unconscious biases on a panel’s activities.
