Case Study on enhancing awareness about biases through Unconscious Bias Training
B-DivIne: Unconscious Bias training
An Indian Multinational conglomerate with business interests across a wide range of industrial sectors like infrastructure, energy, steel and cement decided to focus on the issue of increasing gender diversity at their workplace. An important part of this strategic plan was to bring forth mindset change and behavioural change.
Towards this goal, Avtar was consulted to customize and deliver a series of Unconscious Bias training sessions across different locations in India to address this need.
