Practical tools to mitigate bias
and foster inclusive workplaces

Our Approach

Diversity & Inclusion and Unconscious Bias can be tricky subjects to broach in the workplace. People and organisations have positive intent but are often worried about saying the wrong thing.

Our training is always tailored to what you want your team to ‘learn, feel, and do’ as a result of our time together, with a focus on equipping people with practical strategies that they can implement right away.

Show Don't Tell

We know that facts and figures alone don’t compel people to change behaviours. We always use storytelling, positive role models and case studies to aid learning, making it both more human and more memorable.

Focus on Behaviour Change

Training that is solutions-driven rather than problem-focused equips your team with the tools they need to reduce bias and increase inclusion in their workplace. Compelling behaviour-change is central to our workshop design.

Unconscious Bias

Unconscious bias training is incorporated into almost everything we do here at MIX. Our training ranges from foundation level through to advanced. We do everything from 20-minute animated courses to full day conferences on Unconscious Bias. We have developed Unconscious Bias training for the world’s largest brands, including Microsoft, Nissan and Diageo.

  • What is unconscious bias;
  • Why and how we all have them;
  • How they can conflict with who we are and how we want to be;
  • How we can catch ourselves being unconsciously biased;
  • Actions we can take to outsmart bias;
  • Includes group activities, self-reflection and facilitated discussion.

Practical Inclusive Leadership

Suitable for senior executives and people managers, this helps leaders to appreciate the solid business case for a more collaborative and inclusive style of leadership. As a leader you can have a significant impact on the culture of inclusion and belonging within your organisation. This training tackles the often-elusive topic of inclusion and puts it into practical, everyday actions that you can take to help your team feel valued and able to perform to their potential.

  • Leaders explore ‘what’s it like to be on the other side of you?’ through group activities and guided discussion
  • Case Studies and Best Practice from across industry shared, identifying traits of an inclusive leader
  • Small changes, big impact to build inclusion via delegates’ communication style / recruitment practices / how meetings are run / mentoring / sponsorship / innovation / customer & supplier interaction

Developing a Gender-Balanced Business

It’s well publicised that companies across the globe are increasingly having to work harder to ensure they have a pipeline of women to senior level. In the UK, the requirement on businesses over 250 employees to release their Gender Pay Gap has further highlighted the challenge.

Through case studies and using respected research, we highlight the best practice of both men and women and the organisations they operate within.

Crucially, this is not training to fix the women, or blame the men. It’s about leveraging differences for the benefit of all. This session can be tailored to be women-only, or suitable for all in leadership positions
