UIS Staff: Diversity - Unconscious Bias and Inclusivity (Workshop) Finished 11:00 - 12:30 University Information Services, Roger Needham Building, Norwich Auditorium

Unconscious Bias happens automatically, without conscious control, when our brains make quick judgements or assessments about people and situations. Combatting unconscious bias isn’t about blame. It’s about accountability.

This session will provide an introduction to implicit or unconscious bias and will help you start to understand how our biases influence the decisions we make.

UIS Staff: Wellbeing - Modelling Minds, Optimising Mental Functioning, Understanding Stress and Burnout new POSTPONED 12:30 - 13:30 University Information Services, Roger Needham Building, Norwich Auditorium

Time to Talk Day 2020 is an opportunity for all of us to raise awareness of mental health issues and advocate against social stigma.

As part of the UIS Wellbeing initiative we are very pleased to invite Hisham Ziauddeen a Clinical Senior Research Associate in the Department of Psychiatry and the University’s Wellbeing and Disability Champion to deliver a talk on Optimising Brain Functioning. He is a consultant psychiatrist working in early intervention in psychosis.

He will talk about how we model other minds and how we manage the cost of mental functioning. He will particularly discuss the impact of work and other stress and the phenomenon of burnout. These are complex problems that don’t have simple solutions but there are a range of things that may help and these will be discussed along the way.
