Uncovering Unconscious Bias

Unconscious bias is a term that describes the associations that are outside of our control. It is triggered by our mind automatically making assumptions about someone based on their visible characteristics, background, and even their voice. This course explains how we can overcome our unconscious biases to improve decision making and professional relationships leading to open, inclusive and effective organisations. Unconscious bias can influence key decisions in the workplace and can contribute to inequality in, for example, recruitment, appraisals and promotions.  This course takes a straightforward look at one of the most important issues in diversity management.

Who should attend?
