Unconscious Bias: uncovering our limiting assumptions

Unconscious bias – it’s part of our innate survival mechanism and, at its worst, it can threaten our survival.

Justine Cooper has been delving into and training people, teams and organisations on unconscious bias for decades. With humility, humanity and wisdom she talks us through her personal realisations and experience around unconscious bias, how we can become aware of our own biases and how, even with small actions, we can have a huge positive ripple effect.

Justine is Head of Brook Graham Asia Pacific. The headline words on Brook Graham’s website are Embracing diversity. Inspiring inclusion. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could acknowledge and celebrate all the richness, colour and variety in us and around us! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all felt that we belonged!

In this episode Justine gives us first steps as well as the wonderful, broad big picture view of what’s possible through uncovering and purging limiting and negative biases. I highly recommend getting curious and having a listen. It’s so worth it!
