Unconscious Bias

The aim of the training is to help people uncover their unconscious biases in a meaningful and deeply personal way, within a psychologically safe space where all opinions, ideas and concerns are welcomed and respected.

Innovation - through critical thinking

In a world of competing ‘facts’ and infinite information, it is imperative that we all hone our ability to assess the reliability and usefulness of information.

Then we can generate better ideas and design better solutions.
