Understanding Unconscious Bias (EDHR03)

Provider business unit: Culture and Development »

Who should attend

All academic and professional staff.

Course Overview

Unconscious bias exists outside our awareness. Despite our best efforts to be fair and transparent, it can unconsciously influence our decision-making.  It is important that everyone is able to identify potential unconscious biases and how they impact our behaviour and interactions with others.

This half-day interactive workshop will help all staff to look beyond unconscious bias, develop skills and strategies to interrupt and minimise the impact of unconscious bias and tap into and achieve the most from the diverse talents of one’s team.

Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand and identify unconscious bias;
  • Confidently apply your knowledge of unconscious bias to uncover, highlight and minimise the negative impacts of unconscious bias;
  • Create a more participatory, positive team culture, build better team relationships and improve performance.
