Unconscious Bias - Understanding the Assumptions People Make About You Why it Matters to Your Career and What to Do About it

If you sometimes feel frustrated by the erroneous assumptions people make about you, it could be because their judgements are affected by unconscious bias.   If you don’t fit other people’s stereotypes of your sex or race, for example, it could be very damaging to your career and personal life.   Join us to explore this fascinating area and to learn how it may be affecting your career and what you can do about it.
