SheLeadsTech Event - What’s Your Water? - An Introduction to Unconscious Bias

When:  Jul 19, 2021 from 12:00 to 13:00 (ET)
Associated with  Melbourne Chapter

An old Chinese proverb says, “A fish is the last one to know what water is.” A fish swims, lives and breathes in water. It is part of its very being. Bron didn’t know she was a “fish”. Not when she responded to the Salvo email for volunteers to work on Nauru, nor when she completed her induction. She did start to think she may be a fish when she recognised the churning in her stomach as fear – fear of the asylum seekers because they were different to her. Bron realised she’d been swimming in the water of racism and white privilege her whole life – part of growing up in a white conservative Sydney. Now she knew about her “water” Bron returned to Nauru in the full-time role of Religious Liaison Officer. It became a joy for her to work in a multi-faith, multi-race team where she learned to see difference as an asset rather than a threat.

Bron has synthesized decades of experience and personal insights and distilled into them into frameworks which then draw on and are validated by the research from Forbes, McKinsey, Harvard Business Review and University of Pennsylvania. Bron is determined to make bias conscious in the corporate environment. In the work she’s done with leaders in various sectors, Bron has discovered that raising awareness around bias leads to a greater capacity for broader thinking around diversity and difference which enables leaders to make better- informed decisions. Through more than 30 years’ experience across the education and not-for-profit sectors, Bron has developed her innate ability to work with people and her capacity to see beneath the surface circumstances, analyse the drivers behind behaviour and speak to unconscious bias is phenomenal.
