‘Businesses with a healthy balance of men and women are 15% more likely to outperform their competitors, while those with employees from a good mix of ethnic backgrounds are 35% more likely, claims research by McKinsey & Co.’
Equality and inclusion is big news for businesses and organisations serious about quality, good performance and success.
Over the last decade brap, an industry leader in equality and human rights practice, has helped hundreds of organisations and 1000s of people explore and develop their understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion. Increasing people’s awareness and understanding of unconscious bias is one of the tools that we use to do this. Understanding more about unconscious bias and how it occurs can help organisations develop strategies to reduce its effects – which creates a more inclusive 21st century workforce.
Our evaluation demonstrates the impact and difference that our training has made to participants ability to identify and address bias within their professional and personal environments.
