Providing employees with unconscious bias training is a positive step toward creating a respectful, inclusive workplace culture. We each have unconscious biases and we take these biases to work with us. Left unaddressed, they undermine logical decision-making and contribute to a toxic workplace, where respect and opportunity are not equally distributed. This course will help learners deepen their understanding of unconscious biases and mitigate their effects in the workplace.

What you’ll learn:

  • Explore the concept of unconscious bias
  • Identify specific types of unconscious bias and how they affect attitudes and behaviours
  • Understand how unconscious biases in the workplace can create an unfair playing field where some individuals have unfair advantages over others
  • Review practical ways employees and organizations can counteract potential unconscious biases
