unconscious bias training

Virtual or In-Person Unconscious Bias Training

Our unconscious bias training will help you and your people understand what unconscious bias is and how it can impact your everyday work and performance.

An unconscious bias is a preconception or prejudice which we are not consciously aware of. Unconscious means we are not aware of it. Bias means the preconception or prejudice.

A conscious bias is a bias you are aware of, so for example, in an interviewing situation we might feel that a man of between 20 – 35 years of age is best suited to a particular role. This means we are consciously biased towards applicants who are male of the age 20 – 35.

This training helps in a number of ways; firstly you will get a better understanding of what unconscious bias is and how it occurs in every day work life. Secondly you will see how unconscious bias impacts everyone no matter what their organisation or role.

Most importantly you will learn how to explore your own unconscious bias, and gain an awareness of where your unconscious biases lie. You will then look at what actions you can take to moderate your won unconscious biases in a conscious way. This last part is vital as it is good to know your own biases but better to start doing something about them. And it is possible to take action, but more on this later.

Martins not only knows his topics but also is a master of presentation; keeping us focused on the issue. Break-away rooms is an excellent technique Martins uses in very appropriate moments to stimulate exchange and productive discussions. Very clearly structured presentations. Five stars, for sure!
