Who Would Benefit

This virtual programme is designed for people at every level of an organisation. It aims to build understanding of our conscious and unconscious perceptions, decisions and judgement making.

 

Participants on the programme will learn how to manage their own biases and recognise bias in the behaviours and language of others.    

Course Description
