We are delighted to continue our Autumn Philanthropy in Practice Training Series. The training is open to both members and non-members of Philanthropy Ireland but specifically targeted for those engaged in the grantmaking space.

​We welcome you to join us for the Philanthropy in Practice Series with BRAP on Wednesday, 25th November from 1.30pm-4.00pm. This live interactive workshop on Unconscious Bias will introduce you to the concept of unconscious bias, exploring how bias manifests itself in our everyday lives and how it can influence decision-making when allocating funds as well as our attitudes and behaviour towards others.

 This 2.5hr workshop (with a break in between) will focus on:

  • Understanding bias – conscious and unconscious  
  • Recognising where bias may impact or arise in your grant making work 
  • Discussing strategies to interrupt or mitigate bias

With breakout sessions, links, comments and reflections throughout.
