Unconscious Bias Training
We believe that our unconscious life heavily influence how we make decisions, view, and evaluate others. Our unconscious life stems from our early life experiences and it is when we are informed by these experiences, that we are lead into nonobjective and unconsciously biased decisions.
An unconscious bias is an unconscious belief and attitude that go beyond our conscious perceptions of ourselves and others. Whether we accept it or not, we tend to like people that look like us, think like us and come from a similar background to our own.
Our unconscious bias training courses are engaging, and experiential with many exercises to develop attendees’ ability and confidence to take practical steps to work more inclusively, and so reduce instances of unwanted behaviour.
We introduce a framework that is underpinned by psychoanalysis and neuroscience to practically identify steps that individuals can take to address biases.
We address different areas of any business that are vulnerable to unconscious bias such as:
Recruitment and selection
Performance reviews and appraisals
Promotions, acting up opportunities and fast-tracking
Selecting a project team
Decision making and governance
