Unconscious Bias

Unconscious Bias

What we cover

  1. What unconscious bias is and how it comes about
  2. The implications of implicit bias within the workplace. This includes case studies and encouraging training participants to identify real-world examples in their roles.
  3. A useful framework to categorise cognitive biases to mitigate against them
  4. Practical actions you can take to mitigate or balance out unconscious bias within the workplace. 

How the session is structured

Your coach-facilitator will combine some thought provoking exercises, expert insights and group conversation for sharing perspectives. All attendees receive a professionally produced training workbook which includes exercises from the training and other content that they can take away with them. After the training each attendee receives a series of email 'nudges', which are small reminders of topics we discuss in the training and small tasks to help them further embed their knowledge and mitigate unconscious bias in their day-to-day work.

One participant has said in their feedback:

“I thought Toby was very insightful, having a lot of examples to hand to help us identify scenarios where unconscious bias can impact our decisions. I thought the atmosphere created was very collaborative and a safe space for people to throw out ideas.”

And another training participant said:

“I thought it was really well structured, a good mix of informative and interactive. Toby was great, really friendly, organised, had lots of examples which really helps, and practical tips which are always key to these sessions. He gave the right level of background and theory vs delving into more specific topics.”
