Unison – All-staff Equalities Programme
Thinking differently and fighting group think - Sony Pictures Entertainment
This session was delivered at Sony Pictures Entertainment as part of their celebrations of National Inclusion Week. We delivered two workshops for staff to look at creativity, bias and group think.
The aims of the sessions were:
- Understand the tensions between the need for consistency, creativity and conformity within the organisation.
- Look at strategies to allow creativity to be harnessed, consistency and conformity to operate appropriately
- Look at the concept of group think and in-groups/outgroups.
- Develop strategies to connect inclusion, diversity and innovation.
- “well presented, very comfortable feel”
- “good presenter”
- “thanks it was very good”
Delegates found most useful:
- “Brainstorming with colleagues from others departments on how to think differently and inspire new ideas”
- Learning about “challenging the status quo” and “bias thinking”
Mental health Awareness - Fanduel
As part for mental health awareness week, we delivered two interactive workshops on mental health awareness at FanDuel in Edinburgh. FanDuel is a web-based fantasy sports game.
The aim of the session was to increase understanding of mental ill health at work and discuss how to support colleagues who are at risk of, or experiencing, a mental health condition.
In small groups, we discussed:
- What is mental ill-health
- The 5 factors of mental wellbeing
- Common types of mental ill-health and symptoms
- Managing your mental wellbeing and supporting others
Over 80 % of delegates rated the session as “useful” and/or “thought provoking”
“Really enjoyed, well presented”.
“I found the advice about speaking to others very interesting and useful”.
