The Clubhouse Presents: To Affinity and Beyond

Who you interview. The people you hire. Who you mentor. The ones you promote. Your unconscious bias will influence all these decisions. But if it’s unconscious, how do you keep it in check?

Join us on 26 January for The Clubhouse Presents: To Affinity and Beyond. Our brilliant guest speaker and inclusion advocate, Ann-Marie Blake, will look at affinity bias and the impact it has in organisations today. 

We’ll cover:

Affinity bias is a type of unconscious bias where people gravitate toward others who appear to be like them. Through a practical exercise, we’ll explore:

  • What is affinity bias, and what implications does it have in your workplace?
  • How your inner circle and the people in your life influence the decisions you make.
  • Practical steps you can take to go beyond affinity bias.

You’ll leave with a better understanding of the power of a diverse network, plus the format for a practical exercise to use in your organisation.

Who is To Affinity and Beyond for?

Anyone working in-house in an internal comms, HR or company culture role. This one’s for you if you have a particular interest in diversity, equity and inclusion.

The Clubhouse Presents: To Affinity and Beyond is a virtual session on Thursday 26 January, 12pm – 12.40pm.
