Unconscious bias in the workplace is notoriously tricky to tackle. Join this course to learn tried-and-tested steps to unravel and minimise unconscious bias in your organisation

Starting on 29 December 2020

About the course: 

Unconscious bias is prejudice that operates at an implicit, subtle and unobvious level. It is a type of bias that you or the people around you are unaware of and may even deny, but is actually there hiding beneath the surface, waiting to affect decisions that you or others make.  

At the workplace, unconscious bias comes in many different forms such as gender, racial, affinity and conformity bias. Factors that objectively ought to be irrelevant to the decision-making process are unintentionally influential because as human beings, we have a natural tendency to stereotype and even discriminate.  

Regardless of the type of unconscious bias, the end result is inevitably the same: where unconscious bias exists, some parts of the workforce will  be unfairly excluded from opportunities for which they ought to have exposure to.  

However, unconscious bias is notoriously tricky to tackle. How can you confront something that people may not be aware of, and may even vehemently deny? 

During this course you will learn:  

  • What is unconscious bias and its effects on the workplace. 
  • What are the defining characteristics of unconscious bias? 
  • What are the different types of commonly observed unconscious bias? 
  • The steps to take to uncover and tackle unconscious bias. 
  • What other organisations are doing to mitigate unconscious bias in the workplace and the effectiveness of their measures. 

Sign up for this online course if you want to:

  • Understand more about unconscious bias and how it affects the workplace. 
  • Take steps to uncover and/or mitigate unconscious bias at work. 
  • Explore case studies of how other organisations have been working to minimise unconscious bias.
