We all think of ourselves as ethical people. But even the most principled of us are likely to have blind spots simply due to the way our minds work

This workshop will reveal the hidden workings of our moral minds, showing how unconscious forces like heuristics and biases can lead us to behave in ways that contradict our deeply held values. It will then provide useful tools to improve your self-awareness and promote more ethical behaviour. We’ll explore heuristics and biases and how they influence our choices, without us even knowing it. Plus what we can do to overcome bias. 

This intimate, in person session will be fun, playful and interactive where we hope to unlock the wisdom in the room as well as leave with new insights. You’ll meet other curious people, who are willing to delve deeper into the mess and complexity of what it means to be human. 

Places are very limited to ensure everyone can participate.  

So, tune in to tune up and hopefully we can all do life just that little bit better.

About the series

Ethics Tune Up is an innovative and engaging masterclass series from The Ethics Centre that will take your ethical skills to the next level. These workshops are an opportunity to extend your knowledge of ethics and learn how you can apply these principles in your life.  

Facilitated by leading philosopher Dr Tim Dean, these two-hour workshops will be equally enjoyable and informative as they help you navigate today’s complex ethical terrain and guide you towards living a good life. 

This session is part of a new masterclass series including Ethics 101 (1 May) and Ancient Wisdom for Everyday Life (8 May). A discounted multipack is available if you book all three sessions.
