Unconscious Bias and the Management Consultant
The Centre for Management Consulting Excellence has continued its regular programme of evening Showcase seminars, in April featuring the topic of Mindfulness, Mental Health And Magnificent Consulting. Consulting may be the best job in the world (!) but with demanding clients, exhausting travel schedules, long hours, tight timescales or all of these at once, it can often be a high-pressure, high stress environment. During this Showcase, Constança Casquinho and Victoria Fellowes explained how mindfulness and some self-help techniques can help improve the ability to deliver great projects to clients and live a happier and more balanced life.
In May we will be featuring an event run by our parent, the Worshipful Company of Management Consultants, one of the livery companies based in the City of London. Usual practice has been for the Company to celebrate its educational activities with an annual dinner, but this year it will be a virtual event focusing on Diversity and Inclusion - which is of course open to all! The topic is Unconscious Bias and the Management Consultant and the speaker will be Professor Binna Kandola, who is a Business Psychologist. He is Senior Partner and co-founder of Pearn Kandola. As well as leading the practice, Professor Kandola is the author of three new and critically acclaimed books on these subjects – ‘The Invention of Difference: The story of gender bias at work’, ‘The Value of Difference: Eliminating bias in organisations’, and ‘Racism at Work: The Danger of Indifference’.
The event is free to attend and booking and further details can be found here: https://www.wcomc.org/civicrm/event/info?id=583.
