Working with asylum seekers on the Pacific island of Nauru shook Bron Williams – then a Salvation Army Minister– to the core. With an inherent belief she did not carry personal bias, the alternately confronting and rich experiences created an incredible level of awareness of the significant impact individual and corporate stories have on how we perceive the world.
Realising her own unconscious bias, which lay latent through growing up in a largely white Australia, Bron fused the insights from Nauru with her diverse career in education and not-for-profit to build on her innate capacity to see beneath the surface to the behaviours we see, accept and often rally against every day.
Bron is determined to make bias conscious in the corporate environment, to build awareness that we are a result of our environment, and better served making those biases conscious, and developing targeted strategies to drive successful growth and change.
Not all biases have negative effects. We can have a bias towards optimism which is instinctive or which we can intentionally develop. We will explore how to go about identifying our biases, and build an awareness to our biases.
