Unconscious Bias Training
Disrupting Unconscious Bias at all levels in the organization.
Duration: 1.5-hrs or 3-hrs
Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about various social and identity groups, and these biases stem from one’s tendency to organize social worlds by categorizing.
To become more diverse, equitable, and inclusive, Unconscious Bias (UB) training can raise awareness of the mental shortcuts that lead to snap judgments—often based on race, gender, and identity—about people’s talents or character, it strives to make hiring and promotion fairer and improve interactions with customers and among colleagues.
Why This Training is Important
- Research confirms that everyone has unconscious biases – it’s the way the human brain processes and categorizes vast amounts of information. However, if left unchecked, unconscious biases can lead to unfair or discriminatory behavior with negative consequences.
- As part of a multipronged approach to improving diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), unconscious bias training can help individuals recognize, manage, and minimize their own biases and create a more respectful, safe, and inclusive workplace.
