8 May 2024: Lecture "Tracking Unconscious Bias - Basics for a diversity-sensitive Work and Communication Culture" for the IOC

Content
Whether we like it or not, unconscious thought patterns and cognitive shortcuts influence our behavior, our way of communicating, and our decisions. They lead to stereotyping and thus counteract a diversity-sensitive and appreciative working atmosphere and communication culture.
The lecture aims to raise awareness of our own biases, encourage reflection on them and provide initial impetus for avoiding them.

Target group
The Workshop is a demand-specific offer for employees at the Chair of Technical Thermodynamics

Trainer
Simonetta Batteiger is a team builder and inclusive leadership expert with more than a decade of experience leading product and business teams in technical contexts.
