Are you unconsciously biased? Last week Campaign Underground challenged delegates to explore and confront their own Unconscious Bias. We designed three sensory experiences to explore unconscious bias through voice, music and smell. Click here for more information on workshops and Unconscious Bias and The Senses.
Wizard of Oz style, we asked everyone to listen to the voice behind a curtain and answer a live survey about their perceptions and assumptions about age, class, intelligence, job, sexuality, status, wealth, education, ethnicity and behaviours. How do you feel about the person: would you hire, work for, date, become a friend of the person based on their voice?
We're fascinated with the results and want to extend the conversation outside the conference. Vetyver Voices #vetyvervoices is a campaign to collect, share and listen to voices and provide a platform to explore and discuss the assumptions and value judgements we make without realising. Visit www.vetyver.co.uk/vetyvervoices to record share your voice and join the conversation.
