Hello all

And here we are, pretty much autumn - days are getting darker. Now isn't that wonderfully gloomy - indeed it is. So let's meet and talk about Bias.

Today we welcome Mia Impey, a Diversity and Inclusion Manager and Recruiter at ADLIB:

Mia's session will revolve around bias (the conscious and the unconscious kind), including some case studies, the psychology behind it and some tips to become aware of your own as well as tips to overcome it if you find yourself on the receiving end. Expect an interactive session, with space to discuss your own experiences.

Women only event, to allow for an empowering environment.
Please bring a laptop, pen and paper and an open mind! 😊
