Lunch Event at European Control Conference 2024 (ECC)

How do your biases affect your leadership, career and work environment?

Most of us think, that we act and decide very rationally. But we all have so-called unconscious biases. What are unconscious biases? What role do they play in our daily lives as researchers? How do they influence us, when we work together, integrate new team members, or in leadership situations? By understanding how biases can impact our interactions with others, we become more equipped to make robust decisions and objective judgments. The following aspects form the foundation of the input session: the definition and impact of unconscious biases, different types of unconscious biases and how to avoid or mitigate them. After the input session, the aim is to work on several cases and discuss, how to improve meetings, interview situations or appraisal talks.

Program for the lunch event:

  • 12:15-12:20: What are unconscious bias and why we cannot avoid them?

  • 12:20-12:45: How can we reduce bias impact in our leadership, career and work environment? (Case studies)
