This new in-depth 5-hour masterclass dives into the limitations of our human mind. Participants will learn how to identify unconscious biases in the workplace, account for them, and redesign the company processes and general culture to create a more inclusive environment.
Humans do not think rationally. We believe that we have an accurate perception, an accurate memory, or that we can multitask efficiently. We believe that we are in full control of our decisions according to our values, that we have free will, that we can understand others, that we are logical beings. Sadly, this is all a lie. This workshop proposes to explore some of the most common cognitive and social unconscious biases that trick us into making bad decisions in everyday life and prevent us from building a more inclusive environment, even if we understand the importance of diversity. It will also offer tips to avoid falling prey to these biases as much as we can, and improve diversity & inclusion in the hiring and promotion processes.
“Celia’s approach to training revealed how pervasive Unconscious Bias is around us and within ourselves. She offered unique insights into the realistic challenges and opportunities of what is required for change through her first-hand experiences working in tech/games. I walked away more educated and passionate about the work ahead!” -Liz, People Business Partner, Scopely
