WORKSHOP

Inclusive Leadership & Unconscious Biases

AI is used in the Area9 adaptive algorithms, but human interaction remains critical to the Above & Beyond Academy.

This is why we run a briefing, prior to the implementation of the tools, and why we also offer supplementary workshops to further enhance the impact, to facilitate implantation and ensure ongoing learning. By running workshops for teams within the company, we can create a common frame of reference and language.

Workshops focus on exchanging experiences, inspiring participants, increasing knowledge through theory, research and relevant cases and building on our online adaptive learning tools. The purpose of this is to develop awareness and behaviour among all employees across the entire
organization.

Inclusive Leadership & Unconscious Biases

It is the task of the leader to create an organisation and team mindset which tackles prejudice and champions diversity. This workshop gives the leader the knowledge and the tools to work to positively influence and utilise the benefits of focusing on diversity.

UNDERSTANDING AND OVERCOMING UNCONSCIOUS BIAS

Developing and maintaining an inclusive culture means addressing the unconscious biases that have been found to adversely affect hiring and selection processes. One way to do this is through bias training.

Unconscious biases tend to arise because our brains have a strong desire to make quick and final decisions to eradicate possible doubt, insecurity or ambiguity, but this is incompatible with the conscientious decision-making that should govern hiring practices.

As such, we have developed our tools and workshops to define and raise awareness about biases, and the ways they can manifest themselves.

By becoming aware of ingrained biases, and working to diminish them, companies can develop a culture that is more curious, open to new ideas, and most importantly, inclusive.
