BEYOND UNCONSCIOUS BIAS
These project partners, together with their research partners and consulting partners make Beyunbi possible
The EU currently counts around 10 million managers who make millions of decisions every day, affecting the sustainability of our economy, society, and environment. Whether organisational development, investments, recruitments, regulations, or dismissals – leaders’ decisions have far-reaching consequences. While competent management will carefully consider the needs of the organisation and its wider environment, decisions are always influenced by unconscious processes. All people have biases, and biases of all kinds are part of our unconsciousness.
Against that background, CEC European Managers highlights the importance of enhancing the quality of decision-making processes in leadership. With its new 18-month EU Project “Beyond Unconscious Bias: empowering inclusiveness in European leadership” (BEYUNBI), CEC will study the prevalence of unconscious bias among managers in the EU and develop an EU pilot training scheme on unconscious biases and ways of moving beyond it. How can we learn to be aware of our unconscious biases and which kind of guidance can help us in benefitting decision making, particularly within the European labour market and for delivering on the SDGs?
