ABOUT RACE EQUITY AND MENTAL HEALTH

What I will be learning in the race equity and mental health training?

Race Equity and Mental Health training is tailored to senior leaders.


 The race equity and mental health training will give senior leaders the knowledge, skills, and 
confidence to address inequalities faced at work by People of Colour and Black people.


This course is aimed at senior leaders because dismantling racism and 
commitment to becoming an anti-racist organisation starts at the top.


The MHFA England created the training to help workplaces play a key role in creating a society where everyone’s mental 
health matters, and so this course is designed to empower senior leaders to create 
tangible and actionable next steps to make meaningful cultural change in the workplace 
and enable every employee to bring their whole self to work.


The course will be delivered on the 
Online Learning Hub and is made up of three two-hour live sessions. 


Learners will be 
required to complete individual learning before each session. If there is high demand for 
the course, we will look to open applications for future upskills. 

What is unconscious bias? How to improve workplace relationship?

Unconscious Bias

 

We’ve all heard of unconscious bias; some of us may even know what it means. Some of us think we know what it means. Most of us don’t understand what it really means. That’s where this course comes in.

 

The course explains what unconscious biases and how we can overcome our unconscious bias to improve decision making and professional relationships; to create more open, inclusive and effective organisations. Using examples and interactive exercises the course takes a straightforward look at one of the most important current issues in diversity and inclusion.

 

Takeaways

 

  • Learning about unconscious bias in the workplace and why it matters – How unconscious bias affects decision making in activities such as recruitment, people development, performance management, leadership and marketing.
  • Understanding types of bias – An exploration of how unconscious bias works, including implicit association, affinity bias, and the unconscious organisation.
  • Knowing ways to override natural bias – Practical ways to challenge our own biases, to consciously break habits and to do things differently.
