Press Release #3

Trainings on the Unconscious Bias in the Recruitment Process

Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity, IRC Hellas (International Rescue Committee Hellas) and KEAN (Alternative Youth Search Cell), in the framework of the European project PROGEDI (Promoting Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace), are providing trainings on the Unconscious Bias in the recruitment process.

The trainings are delivered by Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity and are aimed at staff of SMEs and non-profit organisations and more specifically at people working in HR and management positions.

In this trainings, participants will be trained to identify unconscious biases and to deal with them in practice, at all stages of the recruitment process. In addition, information will be provided on the right of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers to access the labour market, as employers’ lack of knowledge of this right has proven to be an additional limiting factor when considering job applications.

The PROGEDI project partners invite you to participate in the trainings that will take place in December 2023 and January 2024. The first training will take place on 6 December 2023, 15.00-18.30, at the Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity offices, 52 Konstantinoupoleos Street, Athens, Greece. Participation is free of charge, and up to 2 people from each organisation working in an HR department or in an administrative position can participate. To express your interest in participating in one of the next trainings, please email the organization’s Diversity Network Officer Dimitra Steins at dimitra.steins@g2red.org

As for the PROGEDI project, its main objectives are to strengthen the capacity of employees in the public sector, small and medium-sized enterprises and non-profit organisations to implement practices of inclusion and respect for diversity. At the same time, to raise awareness and information on all the pillars of Diversity in the working environment. Encouraging businesses and public sector bodies to sign the Diversity Charter in Greece and, finally, strengthening national and transnational cooperation on diversity management between private businesses, the public sector and civil society.
