The term "bias" means partiality, inclination, prejudice. Unconscious biases are unconscious cognitive biases, such as automatic stereotypes, and other unconscious thought patterns that are deeply ingrained. They can lead to faulty biases in how we perceive and judge people or whole groups of people. Biases affect how we communicate and act in any situation - in what ways we can influence. An important step for this is to become aware of our very personally anchored biases; another, to become familiar with options for action and communication.
Understand what unconscious bias means
Awareness how own unconscious bias influences actions
Strategies to deal with unconscious bias
Short inputs by trainer
When and where does unconscious bias play a role? When and how does our individual bias influence our perception and our actions? What exactly does "bias" mean anyway? And what does it have to do with leadership?
This interactive workshop gives participants the opportunity to investigate their own professional actions in their role as professors and to develop (individual) strategies for dealing with unconscious bias based on their own/practical examples.
