Unconscious Bias and the LGBT+ Community - Thursday 20th June 6PM

We can't rely on what we see to give us the full picture about people that we meet. It’s all too easy to make rapid assumptions and judgements about people, which can be fuelled by unconscious bias. Conditioned by our own heritage, experience, upbringing and popular culture and how we see the world outside, unconscious biases can negatively impact colleagues, particularly at important stages in careers.    


“When it comes to bias, it seems that the desire to believe in a meritocracy is so powerful that until a person has experienced sufficient career-harming bias themselves they simply do not believe it exists.” – so said the late Ben Barres, a trans man and Stanford University biologist.    


Unconscious bias is the subject of SWAN’s latest event. We’re delighted to be hosted once again by our friends at the FDM Group in Central Glasgow. Our speakers will talk about unconscious bias being nothing to be afraid, after all we all have biases, it’s recognising them and avoiding their negative effects.  They’ll share some practical examples and their own experiences both in their diversity and inclusion roles, and more broadly in society in an interactive session followed by networking opportunities.
