Unconscious Bias


Course Description

Unconscious bias occurs when discrimination and incorrect judgments result in stereotyping. These can occur automatically and without the person being aware of it. These types of biases are often so ingrained in culture and society they go unnoticed by many people. The most common are gender, age, and race stereotyping. In this course participants will learn to recognize their own personal bias toward others and strategies to combat those biases. This interactive course enables participants to define unconscious bias, identify the impact of unconscious bias in the workplace, increase awareness of when unconscious bias may be happening in the workplace, recognize bias within themselves as well as the impact of their personal bias on others, and learn to manage their own bias. The course allows time for self-reflection to consider the learning tools to integrate into personal practice.

Learning Objectives
  • Understand the impact of unconscious bias on professional relationships.
  • Have greater awareness of unconscious bias.
  • Identify actions you can take to reduce unconscious bias in the workplace.
  • Have an action plan to continue the journey of uncovering and countering unconscious bias.
