Unconscious Bias Training

Sketch of unconscious biasKIT

Have you ever been biased towards someone? Probably yes, since it is a human trait. Have you ever observed yourself being biased? Probably not or rarely, since often being biased happens unconsciously. Such unconscious biases are tricky, e.g. when judging applicants for a position or evaluating work results. They may cause unwanted and unnecessary disadvantages for ourselves and others. We therefore offer regularly workshops to make people aware of implicit biases.

In 2018, we started with an 'unconscious bias training' to sensitize all employees and executives of the CRC 1173 in handling with this phenomenon on June 28th, 2018, 2 pm, building 20.30, room 1.067.

In 2021, we offered a workshop 'Implicit Bias' on September 2nd, 2021, to give all newcomers in the CRC 1173 the opportunity to become aware of biases in science.
