DWNZ + Comms Council | Unconscious Bias Workshop

Posted 3 September 2019.

Unconscious bias is the enemy of diversity, subtly undermining the hours of time organisations invest in developing an inclusive culture.

Diversity Works New Zealand Unconscious Bias Workshop

The Comms Council, in partnership with Diversity Works New Zealand are pleased to announce a tailored Unconscious Bias training session for members.

In this 90-minute session, participants will gain an understanding of the neuroscience underpinning unconscious bias and the impact biases can have on leadership effectiveness, workplace interactions, communication and decision-making. Through discussion-based learning, participants will learn how to identify how we can recognise bias in ourselves as individuals and leaders; and begin to explore the strategies to create change, build new neural connections and help manage and mitigate unconscious bias.

Participants will:

• Gain an understanding of the neuroscience underpinning unconscious bias
• Learn to identify their own unconscious biases and those of others
• Look at the impact unconscious bias has in the workplace
• Discuss examples of best practice from global and local leaders
• Discover ways to challenge their thinking and build new neural connections
• Get strategies to manage and mitigate bias as individuals, groups and organisations
