About the webinar
Imagine the scenario; two people working together, both high performers, but one consistently receives high praise whilst the other is overlooked. This is the kind of scenario that repeats itself in workplaces across the country when someone’s unconscious biases interfere with their capacity to perceive the situation objectively. Biases based on a perception of someone’s background or appearance can distort our perspective, and lead to unrealistic and sometimes unfair judgements being made.
Unconscious biases take many forms and we’re all susceptible to them. This webinar explores different kinds of biases and identifies helpful strategies for navigating the complex interplay between our biases and perceptions, and mental health and social outcomes.
