Webinar: Minimising Workplace Risk: Removing Unconscious Bias (Recording Option)

12:00pm Friday, 26 May 2023
Recorded Webinar

Please note: The webinar link will be sent to all attendees the day prior to the event

This webinar will delve into the sources of unconscious bias in the construction, engineering, mining and energy industries. This bias at times prevents us from achieving the diversity, equity and inclusion necessary for our success. Due to a predicted shortfall of construction workers in the coming years, our ability to attract and retain the most talented individuals to our industries is critical.

Dealing with unconscious bias is a challenge, primarily due to that first word – it’s unconscious. The first important step is to become conscious of the bias we experience, and to help others recognise the presence of this bias as well.

Through her recent PhD and personal studies, Dr Gretchen Gagel has come to understand much of the psychology related to unconscious bias and how to overcome it. She will share practical tips and stories of how she and others have built more inclusive teams and organisations that achieve outstanding results.
