Our Unconscious Bias Training for Managers has been created for managers and leaders to identify, challenge, and reduce bias in the workplace, so they can cultivate fairer, more diverse, and open organisations. Learn about your responsibilities as a leader and learn how to not let unconscious biases impact your decisions. It also contains a handy section dedicated to the entire hiring process and how to avoid unconscious bias when hiring.
- Learn how to reduce negative the impact unconscious bias can have on organisations
- Learn about management responsibilities and to not let unconscious biases impact your decisions
- Understand what the most common types of unconscious bias are and how the mind works to form these
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!
