Understanding our own unconscious bias, Cardiff

About this event

‘Insights into how our memories impact our prejudice and unconscious bias requiring a journey of conscious awareness to change learned behaviour’.

ICE Wales Cymru are pleased to offer this workshop to our members and friends from CMI Cymru and ACCA Wales/Cymru. But you don’t need to be a member of these institutes as our events are open to everyone.

This is a free event and our speakers have waived their speaking fees to encourage you to attend and would ask you to make a charitable donation to Mind, the charity Victoria is supporting as she runs the London Marathon this year - please give what you can, thank you. virginmoneygiving.com/VictoriaHall10

Unconscious bias is a topical subject but can be misunderstood, dismissed or only considered in the strict context of discrimination law. Being the output of past memories stored in our unconscious brain, unconscious bias applies in all our interactions with each other and is crucial when looking at behaviours such as stigma.

Victoria Hall

Victoria believes that the most important but often neglected responsibility is understanding ourselves and the environment in which our employees work. Victoria’s extensive employment law knowledge, coupled with her dedication to understanding how the brain works through neuroscience, allows her to offer unique and meaningful solutions to clients who want to develop collaborative, growth oriented working environments.

Victoria has worked with CEOs, middle management and individuals, facilitating positive results in attitudes, relationships, resilience, change programmes and embedding culture. Victoria also builds self-awareness into her L&D work as an essential precursor to learning. Victoria is a Trustee for the charity, Mind, Deputy CMI Wales, a mum of two young daughters and does a lot of running!

Clive Hyland

For the past twelve years, Clive has been using neuroscientific insights as the central core of his coaching practice. During this time he has worked primarily coaching Business Leaders and their Top Teams, supporting them to lead strategic business and cultural change.

Having previously studied both psychology and sociology he now focuses on neuroscience to bring a fresh and powerful understanding of what it really takes to get the best out of people and organisations. He can personally call on 30 years of business experience including leadership roles in sizable organisations. Apart from top team facilitation and 1 to 1 executive coaching, Clive also runs coaching masterclass programmes for coaches, HR and L&D professionals who wish to integrate neuroscience into their knowledge and practice.

Author of books “Connect: through Think, Feel, Know” and, most recently, “The Neuro-Edge: People Insights for Leaders and Practitioners”
