  • Utilise strategies for increasing intercultural competence and reducing unconscious bias.
  • Develop a strategy for individual action.


This training opportunity was open to LJMU Staff from the Faculty of Health in the first instance and how now been opened up to a University wide audience. Places are limited and will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis.


Explore Your Own Unconscious Bias:

Ahead of the workshop participants will be asked to explore their own unconscious bias using the “Project Implicit” online resource: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/

Please note: The Project Implicit test was established in 1998 and certain equality monitoring information requested is outdated (i.e.; limited options for participants to select under such questions as “which gender/sex do you identify as?”) –This is currently under review with the Project Implicit Team.
