At Johnson Matthey, our vision is for a world that’s cleaner and healthier, today and for future generations. We’re passionate about people and the planet, and we use science to create technology that contributes to healthy and sustainable societies. For example, we fight air pollution with our automotive technologies, and we make better use of the planet’s resources by turning house waste into air plane fuel.

Unconscious bias and stereotyping, Friday 11 December, 5-6pm.

We`re lying if we say we don’t have biases. The important thing is recognising where those biases exist and ensuring we don`t act on them unfairly. This session covers some important techniques for learning how to recognise and reject your unconscious biases so they don`t prevent you from doing the right thing and treating people fairly and equally.

Hear directly from Johnson Matthey employees and have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session.
