Exploring Unconscious Bias

Why explore Unconscious Bias? 

Unconscious Bias (UB) is often in the news, as an explanation for people’s discriminatory behaviour and as a way of addressing such behaviour, for example, through UB training. 

Interpreters and translators have said that training would be useful to help understand more about UB, and so this is a workshop to address that.  In the workshop we discuss the limits of workshops like these, and what you can do to address those limitations.  We also explore some common critiques of UB and suggest alternatives. 

Josef Baines and Darren Townsend-Handscomb will be delivering the taught sections, and facilitating the discussions. 

Please note that the workshop will be delivered mainly in BSL (Josef is a deaf BSL user). 

Who is the workshop for?

The workshop is aimed at trainee and registered interpreters and translators, Deaf and hearing. .
