Cardinal Newman College, Unconscious Bias Training

A sixth form college, graded as “Outstanding” by Ofsted wanted to explore Unconscious Bias in general with a specific focus on recruitment, selection and gender equality.

A series of bespoke 2-hour Unconscious Bias training sessions focused on exploring:-

  • How unconscious biases impact gender equality and recruitment and selection decisions.
  • Where unconscious biases originate and how they help or hinder individual & collective effectiveness.
  • How to mitigate your own, team and organisational biases to achieve more beneficial outcomes.
  • A Q&A session on the impact of specific biases on gender equality, along with a brainstorming session on how to effectively mitigate those issues.

“We contacted Summit Consulting & Training Ltd to provide training in Unconscious Bias in Recruitment and Selection to around 30 members of staff who are involved in the recruitment process within college.

The organisation of the session ran very smoothly and all enquiries were dealt with promptly. We appreciated being able to discuss the content and the style of training prior to the session taking place in order to tailor it to our needs.

The training itself was engaging, interactive and informative. It was really useful that the different types of bias were broken down and explained along with ways to combat each type of bias in the workplace. The training provided opportunity for reflection on current practice and highlighted action points for improvement moving forward.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Summit Consulting & Training Ltd and look forward to working with them again in the future.”
