HOW TO COMBAT UNCONSCIOUS BIAS
Unconscious bias affects us all. It is an automatic response of our brain to make quick judgements of people and situations, influenced by our own experience.
Is it something that is compromising diversity and inclusion in the workplace? How can we ensure that our unconscious bias positively influences our decisions and action?
This event will introduce attendees to and make them aware of their own unconscious bias. Speakers will present ideas on how individuals and companies can combat it and encourage diversity and inclusion within the built environment.
