Workshop A: Advantage blindness

12:00 PM 01:00 PM Garden room, ground floor

12.00pm
Welcome and introduction
  • Exploring what ‘advantage blindness’ is and how it may impact peoples’ experiences of work place bias

Ben Fuchs, Senior Consultant, Leadership and Organisational Development, The King’s Fund
Ruth Robertson, Senior Fellow, Policy, The King’s Fund 

No one wants to think their successes have come through unfair advantage. But the evidence on diversity in the workplace is conclusive: lots of people are held back as a result of bias, which means others will advance partly through their privilege.

In this interactive session, we will discuss the challenges of recognising our own advantage blind spots and consider what we can do to create more inclusive and fair organisations.

12.20pm
Delegates are invited to reflect upon and discuss their own experiences and potential advantage blind spots.

12.40pm
Discussion: how we can use our advantages to help create a more compassionate and inclusive environment in health and social care organisations.

The way we work is changing. Changing attitudes and expectations, the emergence of new technologies and wider societal changes are all playing a powerful role in shaping how we think differently about health and care services.

This session will explore the impact these changes are already having on leaders in health and care, and the implications for the training and support of future generations of leaders.

This interactive session explores the evidence of the effects of these behaviours on individuals and teams. We will consider what purpose these behaviours may serve in organisations; why such behaviours may persist and what can be done to disrupt their use.

We have been working with a variety of people and teams concerned with these issues. We will share what we know and ask you to contribute your own lived experience, to deepen our collective understanding of these behaviours.

The discussions during this hour will be held under the Chatham House rules.
