Unconscious Bias Workship

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


This event comes as a recommendation from the Royal Military Academy Female Leadership Strategic Forum last December in which we discussed and evaluated diversity and inclusivity with some partners in industry, religion, education and other government departments. The recommendation was to revisit in much more detail Unconscious Bias which was one of the original themes of the Forum. The event will be supported by X-Forces Enterprise who enable the Armed Forces Community to be the BEST in Business with partners in Government, Charities and Big Business. The event explores Unconscious Bias through a number of central lectures and practical workshops led by academics and leading thinkers. Delegates will have the opportunity to attend three different practical workshops which they will sign up for on the day. The day programme will include: * Informative and practical sessions delivered by RMAS SME Behavioural Science academics. * Practical techniques to use individually and in organisations. * Aide-memoires to take away. * Your chance to explore issues and share good practice. Aims. The aims of the day are to: * Explore Unconscious Bias; what it means and its importance to inclusivity and diversity * Support employers in the provision of Continued Professional Development * Facilitate an academically led exploration of current and new areas of Unconscious Bias Programme 0845 - 0930 Arrival & coffee 0930 - 0940 Welcome 0940 - 0945 Introduction (Dr Deborah Goodwin OBE HoD CABS) 0945 - 1030 Unconscious Bias: the CABS view (Gareth Bloomfield, Sam Staples) 1030 - 1045 Coffee 1045 - 1150 Practical Workshops #1 1200 - 1250 Cognitive Bias at the Operational Level (Lt Col (Retd) Dennis Vincent MBE Dep HoD) 1250 - 1330 Lunch 1330 - 1445 Practical Workshops #2 1440 -1455 Tea 1500 - 1605 Practical Workshops #3 1610 - 1620 Close and look ahead (Dr Deborah Goodwin OBE HoD CABS) Practical Workshops.
