IP Inclusive are running a seminar/workshop on unconscious bias on Wednesday 8th November, between 16:00 and 17:30. Mathys & Squire, one of our Charter signatories, are kindly hosting this for us at their offices in The Shard. The aim is to create a toolkit of practical measures for raising awareness of, and mitigating, the impact of inappropriate biases and assumptions. The seminar will be followed by networking and drinks.This is a free interactive seminar exploring the effects of unconscious bias in the IP professions and ways to address it. You will learn what unconscious bias is; when and why it occurs; how it impacts on both organisations and the individuals within them; and how to take action against it.
Aimed at anyone involved in recruitment or HR, or with influence over their organisations’ equality, diversity and inclusion policies, the event will include workshop-style discussions to create a “toolkit” of practical measures that you can take back to your own organisation to raise awareness of unconscious bias and overcome its detrimental effects.
Places are limited so please book as soon as possible if you’d like to join us. To register, please visit the registration website here.
