UNCONSCIOUS KNOWLEDGE & BIAS SESSION
11AM-12:30PM 10th November 2017
The aim of this 90 minute session is to explore the role of unconscious bias in judgements and decision-making and how it leads to unintended outcomes, such as discrimination and other types of suboptimal decisions. The program will introduce participants to strategies to overcome biases that can be used back in the workplace.
This program is a highly interactive learning two-phase program comprising:
Phase 1: Unconscious Knowledge Pre-Assessment (completion of online assessment)
Phase 2: Unconscious Knowledge and Bias 90 minute Workshop
Prior to the workshop, you are to complete an online task called the Unconscious Knowledge Assessment. Your unconscious knowledge may influence your decisions and judgements at times when your ability to consciously process situations has been limited - such as when you are under time constraints, are stressed or tired, or when you are performing a familiar task. The assessment takes around 20 minutes to complete after which your report will be available to be downloaded. Please bring the report (either digitally or printed copy) with you to the workshop.
Experts in this field, Cognicity Pty Ltd, are running this session.
