Unconscious Bias Training 

At FIRST Robotics Australia we are committed to making our events and programs exciting, engaging, inclusive and welcoming for everyone. At the Australian Regional, we will have a very diverse group of participants and we want to ensure they have a fantastic experience and feel welcome and included in everything that we do. To help us make this the best event it can be for everyone attending we want to shine a light on unconscious bias and help us be the best we can be in our volunteering.

Help us to make FIRST events awesome and inclusive for everyone!
