Unconscious bias has gotten a bad rap! Yes indeed! In much the same way that we stereotype people, many have stereotyped all unconscious biases as something negative, bad. The Breaking Bad Bias© workshop will clear the air and help attendees to fully understand bias from the science of human behavior and cognitive neuroscience. Such an understanding is required to begin to successfully address unconscious biases at both individual and organizational levels.
The key word in that last sentence is "begin." Merely understanding unconscious bias is not enough to take on the biases that lead to negative outcomes, like exclusion. Why? Because it's unconscious! Learn the best strategies of reducing negative unconscious bias and replacing with positive mindless bias.
Becoming more mindfully engaged is necessary to address thing like, well, mindless bias.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
What exactly is a bias from a brain perspective and why that knowledge matters?
How are biases both bad AND good and why understanding this distinction is crucial?
Could unconscious bias workshops be a waste of organizational dollars?
Next steps to address unconscious bias when you return to your organization.
And so much more!
