Unconscious Bias


Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. Bias is an ordinary, human tendency, but can have far-reaching consequences if certain individuals and groups are disadvantaged. This professional development will explore the topic in more depth to increase personal and company-wide awareness.  Learners will explore practical, realistic approaches for reducing unconscious bias in the modern workplace. 

Learning objectives
