Unconscious Bias Training
Unconscious bias training is a positive step to help organizations recognize and address hidden biases that can influence workplace decisions. Believing male employees are better at physical work, assuming individuals have a particular skill because of their race, or judging an applicant because of her last name are common examples of how unconscious biases can affect decisions and workplace culture.
Research confirms that everyone has unconscious or implicit biases – it’s part of human nature and the brain’s need to categorize huge amounts of information. However, if left unchecked, unconscious biases and stereotypes can create an unhealthy work environment and lead to discriminatory behavior. As part of a holistic approach to preventing discrimination and harassment, unconscious bias training can encourage individuals to understand and manage their hidden biases and assumptions and create a more positive, diverse workplace.
