Diverse teams challenge stale ways of thinking and sharpen performance. Learn how to break entrenched organizational thinking and overcome unconscious bias pitfalls for better business outcomes and improved performance.
The workshop will consist of four modules:
1) Heighten consciousness: Learning how our brains manage information is essential to understanding the impact of unconscious bias in business. Through a series of interactive activities understand how unconscious/implicit bias is inherent in all of us and how this understanding can improve perception and understanding of those around us.
2) Examine your unconscious biases: Examining their own unconscious biases through targeted exercises will allow participants to learn more about the different types of biases and learn to question long-held assumptions.
3) Learn from others: Participants will work together to explore their understanding of the role of bias in their organizational decision and learn better navigate the pitfalls of unconscious bias in their workplace.
4) Plan for change: The final module will bring all the elements together as participants plan for change. They will reflect on what they have learned, identify what they plan to do differently and how they will implement change and determine how they will hold themselves and others accountable.
