An introduction to unconscious bias – from industry experts

Presented by

Marcelo Souza, Country Manager at Thomas Brazil and Graeme Doyle, Managing Director of The Logistics Partnership LLP

About this talk

79% of HR professionals believe that unconscious bias exists in recruitment and succession planning decisions. But what is unconscious bias? Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside of their own conscious awareness. Types of unconscious bias include gender bias, confirmation bias and affinity bias. Unconscious bias has a role in almost every aspect of the modern workplace and if left unchecked, unconscious biases can lead to a loss of talent and innovation and it can breed a culture of discrimination in your workplace. Join Marcelo Souza and Graeme Doyle in the first of our series of short, 30-min webinars, where they will discuss the definition and types of unconscious bias, as well as providing the latest industry insights into the implications of leaving this unchecked. Graeme will provide expert insights into confirmation bias within recruitment and leadership. This webinar is for HR professionals, leaders and managers looking to improve their diversity and inclusion strategy by addressing unconscious bias in the workplace.
