    Welcome to the GEPARD training on Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion, with a special focus on the unit exploring Unconscious Bias. In this unit, we delve into the subtle yet influential forces that shape our perceptions and decisions, often without conscious awareness. Our aim is to foster an understanding of these biases and equip you with tools to promote a more inclusive and equitable environment.

    Throughout this training, utilise the provided presentation as your guide, offering a structured pathway to grasp essential concepts. Engage with the Implicit Association Tests (IAT), a powerful tool designed to assess individual biases, providing insights into your unconscious preferences. Embrace the use of thought-provoking videos, strategically incorporated to reinforce fundamental concepts and prompt reflections on overcoming unconscious bias.

    As we navigate this unit together, consider the resources as companions on your journey towards fostering a workplace or a study place that values diversity and champions inclusion. Embrace this opportunity to broaden your perspective, challenge assumptions, and contribute to cultivating a more equitable space in society.
