Unconscious Bias

In this workshop we talk about bias in the workplace and how it may show up in our day to day jobs. We start by reflecting on our own identities and share with the larger group around how we’ve faced biases in relation to these identities in the past.  We go on to break down 6 key types of Bias: Horns Bias, Halo Bias, Affinity Bias, Confirmation Bias, Conformity Bias, and Attribution Bias. We talk about current internal processes and ways that we can build structure/safeguards to minimize the effects of these biases and support a culture of fairness and inclusion.
