Unconscious Bias Training Course

Unconscious bias is something that affects everyone, and no one pretends that it's easily eradicated. But realising that it does exist and that it is potentially creating business risk is a good starting point.

Overview

This course is suitable for anyone as everyone has biases. We are all prone to jumping to jumping to conclusions, misjudging people and favouring some more than others, way more than we ever realise. This course will help delegates minimise the potentially harmful effects of unconscious bias. Delegates are equipped with a range of tools and skills to do something about unconscious bias in the workplace.

Course Outline

  • Introduction
  • What is Unconscious Bias
  • Understanding Unconscious Bias
  • Adverse impact Unconscious Bias has on individuals and organisations
  • Challenging personal bias and minimising its impact on decision-making
  • Exploring Unconscious Bias in the workplace
  • Techniques for better decision-making
  • Strategies for creating a more inclusive working environment

Course Content

This course explains how we can overcome our unconscious bias 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.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course delegates will:

  • be able to accept we are all naturally unconsciously biased
  • be able to take a shared and an individual responsibility to address this.
  • understand the difference between bias, prejudice and stereotyping
  • understand unconscious bias in the workplace and why it matters
  • understand how unconscious bias affects decision making in activities
  • have explored the different types of bias
  • have explored how unconscious bias works, including ‘implicit‘ affinity conformational bias
  • understand how to override natural bias using practical ways to challenge our own biases, to consciously break habits and to do things differently
