Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 4 sections
- 1 Unconscious Bias in the Workplace
- 2 Strategies for Reducing Bias
- 3 Management Responsibilities
- 4 What's Next?
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!
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.
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.
This section includes some simple and straightforward tools that you can use as soon as you’ve finished the course. It encourages users to identify and reduce bias right from the outset!
ABOUT THIS COURSE
A bias is a judgement or opinion that’s based on our own thoughts about someone or something - rather than the reality or the facts. Biases are natural (we can’t help having them) but they shouldn’t go unchallenged.
We have conscious biases which are biases we’re aware of, and we have unconscious biases which we’re unaware of - but they are stored away in our mind and they still affect what we think and how we behave.
This Unconscious Bias Training course has been created to explain how you can identify your own unconscious biases and any that exist in your workplace. It looks at how they affect decision making, working relationships and your organisation’s culture. Fundamentally, this training offers practical tools for reducing the negative impact that unconscious bias can have on your organisation.
By identifying, challenging and reducing bias, management can create a more communicative, diverse and successful workforce.
