Our eyes, skin, ears, nose and tongue send around 11,000,000 bits of information to our brain every second. Over 90% of that data comes from your eyes. Our brain can consciously manage less than 50 of those bits of information in a second which leaves our unconscious brain to deal with the rest. Fortunately, that can process around a hundred billion operations per second. To do that, it has to take shortcuts — like recognising patterns and making generalisations based on similar data from past experiences.
Hence our brain’s imperative to build implicit biases and stereotypes. In our early history, this mechanism made it possible to avoid being a predator’s lunch!
In a contemporary environment, understanding that we have implicit biases, identifying them if we can and challenging them is reduces the risk of discriminatory behaviour.
Avoid discrimination and support a culture of diversity in the workplace, everyone has unconscious biases that shape the way we interact with and relate to our colleagues and customers.
- Unconscious Bias for Managers addresses the way implicit bias can affect issues like recruitment, performance management, promotion and team dynamics.
The aim of this course is to help learners recognise when they might be acting or behaving on the basis of unconscious bias, provide them with ways to challenge those biases and counteract them.
This course uses thought-provoking and challenging activities to highlight the impact of bias; a range of video scenarios to bring the material to life and help learners relate it to their own workplace; and clear explanations and practical techniques to help learners identify, challenge and counteract their own biases.
- Find out what unconscious bias is and its impact on customers and colleagues
- Study a selection of common biases
- Explore a range of techniques to uncover biases
- Follow a systematic process for challenging bias
