AWLA committee member Anna Parker attended the free unconscious bias training run by the NZLS. Unconscious bias refers to the stereotypes, both negative and positive, that exist in our subconscious and affect our behaviour. Anna commented “the training was a great way to help firms continue to recognise that they could be missing out on talent, or losing talent without even fully realising it”.

AWLA was pleased to note that this seminar was free and attended by around 1000 practitioners from around the country.
