A chance to learn about unconscious bias - Kennet Radio

A chance to learn about unconscious bias

Building on the success of their events in September and October, Community‌ ‌United‌ ‌West‌ ‌Berkshire is ‌holding‌ ‌the next “Belonging Project” ‌online‌ ‌community‌ ‌forum‌ ‌on‌ 2nd December, when the discussion will be all about unconscious bias.

Numerous studies conducted across the country have shown how unconscious bias contributes to imbalances in hiring, promotion, and compensation for certain racial, ethnic and gender groups.

Guest‌ ‌speakers‌ ‌include‌ ‌Dr‌ Judy Ryde, chair of the Trauma Foundation South-West, and Wali Rahman, the Organisational Development Consultant for Inclusion and Diversity at Wiltshire County Council.

This‌ ‌free‌ ‌online‌ ‌forum‌ ‌is‌ ‌the‌ ‌second in the popular ‌”Belonging‌ ‌Project‌” series organised by Community United West Berkshire.‌  ‌It‌ ‌is‌ ‌an‌ ‌unmissable‌ ‌opportunity‌ ‌for‌ ‌people‌ who ‌live‌ ‌and/or‌ ‌work‌ ‌in‌ ‌West‌ ‌Berkshire‌ ‌to‌ ‌engage‌ ‌and‌ ‌take‌ ‌part‌ ‌by‌ ‌sharing‌ ‌their‌ ‌ideas,‌ ‌challenges‌ ‌and‌ ‌suggestions‌ ‌of‌ ‌how‌ ‌to‌ ‌enhance‌ ‌their‌ ‌experience‌ ‌of‌ ‌living‌ ‌in‌ ‌West‌ ‌Berkshire.‌ ‌
