Unconscious Bias Awareness Training

Participant Group: All UCC Staff

Facilitators: Anne Gannon & Mary Horgan, Human Resources 

Currently we offer two types of training: a) a shorter ‘Take 90 minutes…’ introduction to Unconscious Bias, and b) a more comprehensive 2.5 hour workshop.

Unconscious biases play a role in our day to day decision making, even though we are often completely unaware of their influence. Our biases are often informed by our own backgrounds, experiences, & cultural environments. This Unconscious Bias Awareness workshop looks at: 

  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • The nature of unconscious bias
  • How it works including affinity, confirmation bias & group think
  • The impact of unconscious bias 
  • Strategies & tips for managing unconscious bias
