This event is now fully booked. Please email events@actuaries.ie if you would like to be added to the waiting list.

As actuaries, we are trained to search out the bias in data and analysis. But, as human beings, we are all susceptible to unconscious bias. These biases serve an important purpose for us but can negatively impact our decision making.

In this session, we will build an awareness of what unconscious bias is. We will start to explore our own biases, what we can do to address unconscious bias, and the benefits of doing so.
