How do others judge you in ways that they’re not even aware? And what about the ways in which they ARE aware? Moreover, how are YOU guilty of doing this to others, conscious and unconscious alike?
This talk with Susan J Mumford for the Women’s Equality Party will unpack bias and the role that it plays for everyone in modern-day society. Incorporating unconscious bias, conscious bias and intersectional bias, you’ll leave with an appreciation of the significant role that bias plays in day-to-day life, from the kitchen to the boardroom. This understanding will help you identify bias both witnessed and personally experienced, as well as give you new tools to take positive action on the spot.
This talk by Susan J Mumford will be followed by a participatory Q&A.
Susan J Mumford is an entrepreneur, mentor, speaker, moderator and author. While running a gallery in Soho, London, in 2010, she founded the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD), a non-profit trade network with three chapters: London, New York and Global. This was followed in 2012 by the launch of Be Smart About Art, an online-accessible platform based out of London that helps creative professionals thrive in a changing world. In late 2015, her first book was published in the name of BSAA’s motto: Art is your life. Make it your living. While based in London, Susan spends notable periods in the USA and Continental Europe, where she delivers lectures on creative entrepreneurship, facilitates panel discussions and gives talks on bias, mentors creative entrepreneurs and more.

Holla holla! Time to join the Women's Equality Party to win our first councillor seat in Hackney!
If you've never canvassed before, then this session is for you! Join the WEP Hackney branch in a first timer canvassing session.
Meet in Dalston Square at 11:30am and we will train you on how to canvass including:
- How to read a walk sheet
- What to say to people when they answer the door
- How to positively engage with voters
What happens the first time you canvass?
The first time you canvass you will be paired with an experienced canvasser, you won't be expected to speak to anyone on your first time out! Let the experienced canvasser do all the talking and you will observe and learn how to speak to people on the doorstep from the experienced canvasser. Your group will be assigned a street to door knock, where you'll hold the clipboard and tick off who you talk to while the experienced canvasser does all the talking.
Once you are comfortable door knocking you can begin to talk to people on the door step, so there's no pressure and it's really fun to get to know people in the neighbourhood and their concerns and issues.
All the canvassers then meetup afterwards for a drink, coffee or late lunch to share how door knocking went for everyone. It's a lot of fun to share experiences afterwards and rewarding to hear how many doors we knocked on for the day!
Canvassing Frequently Asked Questions
What is canvassing?
Canvassing is when you go door to door speaking to voters on their doorstep about the upcoming election. For some people it can be a scary experience talking to strangers, but once you build confidence in canvassing many people become addicted!
Why is canvassing so important for local elections?
Statistically, speaking to people on the doorstep delivers more votes than any other method in elections.
What if I can only come for 1 hour?
No problem! WE are happy to have help for any period of time you're available.
What if I can only come late?
Call the canvassing captain on 07533935064 when you're on your way to or when you arrive in Dalston. She will tell you where we are at that time. The fortunate thing is that we are only canvassing in Dalston so everything is close together!
