L’ignorance n’est pas une bénédiction // Ignorance is not Bliss

Reconnaître et défaire les préjugés inconscients // Recognizing and Unpacking Unconscious Bias

Event Details:

Alors que les préjudices et la discrimination demeurent un problème pressant dans les milieux de travail à travers le monde, beaucoup d’organisations font face à un défi plus insaisissable encore : les préjugés inconscients. Le concept n’est pas nouveau. Alors pourquoi les organisations, autant publiques que privées, ont-elles eu tant de mal à l’aborder? Découvrez les théories derrière les préjugés, ainsi que les stratégies permettant de limiter leur impact. Nous devons remettre en question nos croyances actuelles. Ce faisant, nous pouvons déjouer nos pensées, et prendre des décisions moins tendancieuses, à la fois dans notre milieu de travail et dans notre vie sociale.

While prejudice and discrimination remain pressing issues in workplaces around the world, the more elusive challenge facing many organizations is unconscious bias. This is not a new concept, so why have both public and private organizations struggled to address it? Learn the theories behind biases, and the tactics to limit their impact. We must challenge our existing beliefs. In doing so, we can outsmart our brains and make less-biased decisions, both in the workplace and in our social lives.

Learning Objectives:

  • Increase the learners’ awareness of the concept of Unconscious Bias
  • Assist learners to recognize bias within themselves
  • Enable learners to recognize the impact of their personal bias on others
  • Ensure the learner understands bias is natural, but needs to be managed
  • Empower the learner to manage their own bias
