Unconscious bias training

What is Uncosncious Bias?

We are often not aware of the biases that we have. Unconscious bias refers to the way in which the brain routinely and quickly sorts individuals into different groups, bypassing normal, logical, and rational thinking. Regardless of how fair-minded we perceive ourselves to be, we all have some degree of unconscious bias. Although these thought processes are unintended, they have a significant influence on the conscious attitudes and behaviours we hold towards others.

To minimise unconscious bias in the workplace, we need to create space to reflect and understand the source of our behaviours. By taking a curious approach to learning, we can build open and inclusive leaders in the workplace.
