This full-day workshop is going to be popular, so book soon!

We all operate under the influence of biases every moment of every day. It does not make us a bad person; it actually just makes us human. It is the way our brain works efficiently. By attending this workshop, you will not only have a better understanding of what you think, but of how you think.

  • What is bias and why is it so essential to us as human beings?
  • How does the brain process bias?
  • How does unconscious bias affect some of the most fundamental aspects of our lives?
  • How can we learn about our own individual and collective biases?
  • How can we reprogram our responses so we can make better choices for ourselves, our organisations and our communities?

For participants who have previously done, or are currently doing the Melbourne Tourism Leadership Program, this workshop is completely new content for all participants. It is also not reliant upon previous attendance or material covered in any year of MTLP for full understanding and relevance.

This workshop is open to anyone who would like to attend, not just MTLP participants. 

Cost and inclusions

$300 including GST.  Includes facilitation, workshop materials, morning and afternoon tea and lunch
