Neuroscience and managing diversity & inclusion

This one-day masterclass improves your employees’ understanding of issues around diversity and inclusion – and explains the neuroscience behind it

Understanding bias and the brain

Gaining an understanding of neuroscience – the study of the biological basis for learning, memory, behaviour, perception and consciousness – helps us to recognise and identify reasons for behaviour at work. Leaders can use this to improve their performance and bring the best out of their teams and other colleagues.

Awareness of how our brains work also gives us a new perspective on ‘unconscious bias’, and enables us to manage our inherent preferences and not allow them to drive decisions.

Course features

Neuroscience and managing diversity & inclusion is a one-day, ready-to-run masterclass.

Neuroscience provides us with a better understanding of the ways that our brains code information and therefore the basis of how we can change our behaviour. This masterclass is designed to help you devise ways to decrease the impact of unconscious bias and address diversity and inclusion.

We measure the impact of the course through post-course evaluation, giving you confidence about the return on your investment. The relationships and learning community built between participants during the course fosters peer support, engagement and on-going personal development.

What to expect

We cover:

  • How unconscious bias develops in the brain and how change can be difficult
  • The role of unconscious bias in driving our behaviour
  • The relationship between unconscious bias and the diversity and inclusion agenda
  • The benefit of overcoming bias and increasing diversity and inclusion
  • How to overcome unconscious biases to create a more diverse workplace

Participants will be able to:

  • Increase understanding of diversity and inclusion and to consider the impact these have on an organisation
  • Understand the obstacles to increasing diversity and inclusion from a neuroscience perspective
  • Provide and demonstrate tools that can increase diversity and inclusion in your organisation
