Covered in this course

The Unconscious Bias Training for Management course is broken down into 4 sections.

1) Unconscious Bias in the Workplace

This first section goes into what unconscious biases are, the common types, and how they are formed. It looks at how the mind works, how it stores information, and how it creates negative biases. There’s also a couple of little exercises to get you thinking about you and your workplace!

2) Strategies for Reducing Bias

Now we look at the four key areas for tackling bias - self-awareness, acknowledging bias, challenging bias, and training our minds to think differently. We look at stereotyping, body language (micro-actions), and the dangers of making assumptions.

3) Management Responsibilities

Section 3 looks at best practice for shortlisting CVs, conducting interviews, and hiring and promoting staff – we look at the common mistakes that are often made when management rely on their unconscious biases to help with these decisions. We also take a look at team dynamics and the importance of an Inclusive Culture.

The presenter is good, but the ourse takes 45 mins to say something that was easily understood in half that time.

Got me thinking

No summary provided

well delivered but too long

Needs to take on board Bayesian statistics and recognise that the empirical work on diversity is complex. Otherwise we all get to live in an Orwellian world.

Too long. Could have been summarised.

Didn't realise what the unconscious mind does to our everyday thought processes.

Common Examples of Unconscious Bias

Some common examples of unconscious bias include: 

  • Conformity Bias – which is when we behave similarly to others in a group, even if it goes against what we actually believe.
  • Beauty Bias – is the view that the most attractive person will be the most successful.
  • Confirmation Bias – is when we look for evidence to back up what we already believe. So, if we make a judgement about someone, we’ll continue to look for reasons to confirm we’re right. We have trouble believing evidence that goes against our beliefs.
  • Attribution Bias – is when we look for reasons behind our own, and other people’s behaviour. We tend to think others are lucky when they do well, and when they do badly we think it’s due to their personality or bad behaviour. But when we do badly, we tend to blame other people or outside influences.
