This course aims to raise awareness about the invisible but always present nature of stereotypes and the importance of overcoming bias in order to become an inclusive leader and promote diversity, equality, and inclusion in trade union organisations. The course will familiarise participants with the different types of bias and their impact and provide tools to manage and change not only their own behaviour, but also practical actions to implement in their organisations. It will also give participants information that deconstructs stereotypes, allowing them to connect with people whose experiences differ from their own. Through this course, participants will learn how to become more inclusive leaders.
