CQ® Your Bias Virtual Workshop

Event Overview

  • Format Virtual
  • Duration 4 hours
  • Price £ 295 GPB

The CQ®Your Bias virtual workshop will elevate your professional and personal life by helping you get an in-depth understanding of implicit (unconscious) and explicit bias. Since we all have biases, this workshop also teaches you how to manage your bias during interactions with others.

This invaluable skill benefits individuals and organisations by helping them become self-aware global citizens equipped with actionable insights into personal biases and systemic biases present in societal and organisational practices, processes, and policies.

CQ® Your Bias participants will develop the critical skill of cultural intelligence using the Cultural Intelligence (CQ) framework. This framework draws upon research-based findings to provide strategies for disrupting bias in individuals’ lives and organisations.

The CQ® Your Bias virtual workshop uses the Cultural Intelligence Centre’s e-learning course combined with an interactive, live course led by an experienced trainer in unconscious bias.
