BUSINESS IMPACT OF THE UNCONSCIOUS

Unconscious bias can have widespread influence in organisations, with implications on everything from diversity to decision-making.  Whether people realise it or not, everyone makes judgments about others based on stereotypes. While people’s actions based on such unconscious biases aren’t typically malicious, they can negatively impact a business on many levels, chiefly among them is their ability to hire diverse talent.

WORKSHOP SYNOPSIS

This workshop explores the impact of ‘unwritten rules’ in the workplace – ways of working that advantage certain people whilst disadvantaging others. The impact of these ways of working are considered and practical actions identified for decision-making and behaviour which manages the effects to create a more inclusive way of working.
