More than unconscious bias trainings

Unconscious biases have a wide range of effects - in the private sphere as well as in companies. They are difficult to grasp at first, and there are few ways to approach them.

Events on this topic are usually held exclusively in companies, usually for a selected group. It is important to bring this topic closer to as many people as possible!

Mind your business offers both - various formats for companies as well as public lectures, workshops and webinars. These go beyond "classic" unconscious bias trainings, especially through more breadth and a strong focus on implementation.

They are an important, but not the only, element of the de-biasing concept.

Key elements of all events

Mind your business offers workshops which:

  • convey enjoyment and interest on the subject,  
  • are based on solid foundations,  
  • offer interaction and variety in order to gain experiences,  
  • trigger new ideas and grow perspectives ,  
  • focus on your individual implementation.

De-biasing - get familiar with a complex topic step by step

Mind your business offers a wide range of online workshops on the topic of unconscious biases or de-biasing (see available dates). These usually take place exclusively in companies, usually for a selected group. It is important to make this topic accessible to as many people as possible!

Consciously making better decisions - the central theme of the company - means an intensive confrontation with unconsciously effective biases. The public workshops allow this in different ways - on the one hand to get an overview and work out first steps, on the other hand to improve concrete issues in the professional context.
