Unconscious Bias in the Workplace
The training program on Unconscious Bias in the Workplace addresses the implicit attitudes and stereotypes that can affect our interactions and decision-making processes. The program aims to help participants understand how biases are formed in the unconscious mind and focuses on four types of unconscious Bias: affinity, confirmation, social comparison, and attribution error. It suits individuals at all levels, including Individual Contributors, Front-Line Leaders, and Leaders of Leaders. Using the Harvard Implicit Association Test, the training program encourages participants to examine their biases and how they influence their behavior and interactions with different groups of people. By completing the program, employees can gain a deeper awareness of unconscious biases and their negative impact on business outcomes. They can also engage in open discussions about perceptions of Bias in the workplace, leading to increased engagement and retention of high-potential employees who feel that their work environment is equitable. After the training program, there will be reviews of personal and group action plans for the 30-60-90 day period, as well as an optional virtual instructor-led training session for additional discussion.
