This course provides a non-judgmental approach aimed at understanding how unconscious bias operates in the workplace. You will find out what unconscious bias is (and is not) and learn how it can undermine organisational goals and strategies.
The course will offer you the opportunity to increase self-awareness, learn new information and get up to speed with the latest research.
We will explore the Implicit Association Test and identify actions to promote equality, tackle all forms of discrimination and foster good relationships between diverse groups of people. You will gain the skills to begin to address individual and organisational biases with confidence.
This course explains how we can overcome our unconscious biases to improve decision making and professional relationships, and to create more open, inclusive and effective organisations. Using examples and interactive exercises, the course takes a straightforward look at one of the most important current issues in diversity management.
This one day training course (10.00 am - 3.30 pm) provides an informative and interactive session to help delegates understand the impact of unconscious bias on their working lives and become more aware, less biased and more inclusive.
This course is available as an In-House Course and we also run it regularly as an Open Course
Unconscious or unintentional bias is widespread in the workplace and usually unrecognised. It is often based on outdated and irrational assumptions about the roles of racially diverse people, people with disabilities, men and women, peoples' ages, sexuality, religion/belief at work.
It may manifest itself in language, behaviour and decisions that inhibit the recruitment and progression of skilled individuals. It usually means businesses are not acting in their own best interests by failing to make the most of all available talent.
The course will help you recognise examples of unconscious bias and its effect on your business and give you the tools to become more aware and more inclusive. We will provide you with statistics, insights, tips and guidance.
We will facilitate discussion to inform your policies, processes, procedures, practice and business planning, so that you leave the course with ideas and practical actions points for eliminating bias.

This course prepares you to have those courageous conversations.Read More
