We all have biases – that is unavoidable. Whether it’s someone’s race and gender or perhaps their age and weight, we make assumptions about people based on biases and stereotypes. Whether we intend them to or not (unconscious), these biases can become harmful in our interactions with others and prevent us from building effective and authentic relationships. These biases can also lead to conflict. Through unconscious bias training, we will help your people become aware of their biases, develop strategies for overcoming them, and ultimately, help them become better team members as well as more collaborative, inclusive, and productive.
- Define unconscious bias and justify both why it’s critical and the consequences of not understanding it.
- Explain the biology and brain science behind the evolution of unconscious bias within ourselves
- Recognize instances that evoke bias, such as “missing information,”
- Describe common types of biases, such as gender, race, maternal, etc.
- Identify biases within yourself
- Explain Johari’s Window model and its connection to unconscious bias
- Practice strategies for overcoming your biases
- A team that gets along better and is more collaborative and productive
- A more inclusive and safer work environment for people from all social locations
- Stronger employee engagement
- Become a better human!

"After watch Hamza Khan present at CACUSS I knew that his wisdom and expertise would be a great fit for a training retreat CLC was coordinating for 32 professional residence life staff. With only a few weeks turnaround time Hamza was able to create and facilitate a half day workshop that not only educated but also engaged the entire team to the degree that they are still talking about his workshop to this day. From providing tips and tricks on how to be more productive in our professional and personal lives to providing data and insight on how students are learning, Hamza was a fantastic, informative, engaging facilitator providing my team with the energy, insight and inspiration to begin another academic year. Without a doubt Hamza’s workshop was one of the highlights of our training!"
"Had the opportunity to experience a presentation from SkillsCamp and Bailey Parnell herself. Though done remotely, her energy came through and distance didn't detract from the validity of her points. Lots of good takeaways and insights to help myself and my company improve. Specifically, Bailey had very relatable examples and a jocular delivery. Virtual communication skills isn't a dry topic, but she brought it to life in an exceptional way. She recognized the challenge of keeping everyone engaged and had interactive elements to do so. Looking forward to future sessions with SkillsCamp."
"The leadership webinar was a very resourceful session. I certainly benefited from this session. As a leader and people manager myself, I can use [the learnings] as tools and guides for the development of my direct reports as well as my personal development. We should have this kind of programs on leadership more often."
"I attended the Networking workshop because I wanted to enhance my networking skills in order to make stronger professional connections. The workshop instructor presented the material in an accessible way with concrete strategies about how to network more effectively. After attending the workshop, I used some of the networking strategies and was able to make stronger connections with people in my field. I wish I had learned about this workshop earlier in my career because I could have avoided a lot of trial and error which would have saved time and prevented lost connections. I would highly recommend the Networking workshop to anyone who wants to improve their soft skills."
Bailey Parnell, from SkillsCamp, facilitated a personal branding workshop for over 30 university students at the Starting Point 2017 conference at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Bailey’s laid back yet confident facilitation style pulled the students in to her message on the importance of presenting a consistent and professional brand on social media and beyond. Her use of personal anecdotes, theory, real-world statistics, and immediately implementable tips resonated with students looking to create their own professional brands. Don’t hesitate to book Bailey and SkillsCamp for anything related to social media or personal branding.
