Our most loved and popular course has new tools, content, and videos to help minimize bias and build Inclusion skills for today's workforce. Unconscious bias exists in all of us. It helps us make quick decisions by identifying patterns that pop up in the day to day life. Inherent bias is not, in and of itself, a bad thing. But when we allow those biases to negatively (or positively) influence other people’s opinions without the proper information or context, we run into trouble. People should base their perceptions of their coworkers on concrete words, actions, and accolades. However, unconscious biases cause us to make assumptions based on race, age, gender, and any other aspects of our appearance. 

Course Description
This online Unconscious Bias training (aka Implicit Bias Training Program) in the workplace for employees explains the concept of unconscious bias and shows learners how their gut feelings, if left unchecked, can lead to decisions and behaviors that help some people and hinder others.
The new unconscious bias course is designed to help people make better people decisions, which is necessary to build inclusion. This is our introductory course that provides a baseline measurement of employees’ inclusion skills and precedes our inclusion skill-building lessons. 

What is an Unconscious Bias training for employees?
Unconscious Bias training course for employees educates on the concept of unconscious bias, helping everyone understand and recognize their own unconscious biases toward other individuals. It also provides suggested behaviors and actions to mitigate preconceived notions we are used to. However, the Unconscious Bias course must connect to the bigger picture and take diversity and inclusion into account.
