CLIC: Inter-Communication: Unconscious bias new [Places] 12:00 - 14:00 Department of Engineering, CLIC 1

Diversity is a proven catalyst for innovation. However, creating inclusive environments to harness the power of diversity takes preparation. We can be aware or unaware of it, but we are all biased towards people who are different from us. This interactive session will explore where bias come from, what different types of bias can we talk about, and the various forms of diversity. You will gain a deeper understanding of the impact of bias on our daily interactions and decision-making. Additionally, you will learn effective strategies to counteract potential biases.

Join us for a catered sandwich lunch for this lunch and learn workshop. Please let us know of any dietary requirements by 24th January.

NEW: this workshop will be delivered in a hybrid format. Feel free to join online or in person.
