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 bias causes us to make assumptions based on race, age, gender, and any other aspects of our appearance.
This Unconscious Bias training course 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. Interactive polling questions in the course give employers real insight into how employees feel about the concepts and culture skills presented. Emtrain’s innovative Ask the Expert feature gives learners direct access to course experts.
Unconscious Bias training educates employees 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 training must connect to the bigger picture and take diversity and inclusion into account.
