What is Tackle Unconscious Bias and Increase Your Empathy?
Unconscious bias is a fact of life. We all have it. Left unchecked, it can lead us into making unfair decisions to the detriment of our personal and professional achievements. We are all aware of how important diversity and inclusion is for businesses and their leaders. A diverse team will contribute wider ideas and solutions to problems by looking at them from differing perspectives. Attempting to navigate discussions around bias, diversity and inclusion whilst actively improving representation, however, can prove tricky and requires individuals and companies to bravely confront their own prejudice. By gaining a deeper sense of your own identity story and how it informs your global perspective you can dismantle your own unconscious biases, and employ greater empathy. This class will foster the skills you need to create an inclusive, open and positive culture, primed for success.
