Every day, our workplaces are influenced by both explicit and implicit biases. These hidden biases operate on autopilot to help us make swift decisions. Yet, they can unjustly influence our perception of others, often without accurate information or context. Unconscious biases pose significant challenges in recruitment and other crucial decision-making processes.

The impact of these biases can range from mild to severely damaging, leading to inequities in how we perceive and interact with colleagues of different races, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and other characteristics. Unconscious biases can impact who gets promoted, how high visibility tasks are assigned, who is included in after-hours activities that can serve as informal networking opportunities, and any number of other day-to-day business operations. Judgments should be based on concrete actions, words, and accomplishments rather than on unconscious assumptions.

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.
