Since the early days of Human Rights declarations and equality legislation there has been a premise that ‘all people are equal and should be treated fairly’. How does this work in reality? What examples can we use as positive role models or policy pointers? How does the concept of unconscious bias help us to understand and address inequality in practice?
This session will examine the effects of unconscious bias and provide practical ideas for business owners, managers and HR professionals.
|I don’t even know I dislike you! – Unconscious bias||Wed 13th June 2018 5.30 – 6.30pm||£25||Book now|
