Unconscious Bias in the Workplace

HR Edition


Creating a Culture of Inclusion and Diversity.

Strong successful organisations are often underpinned by a mix of talented people. It’s the diversity of the workplace talent that encourages creative thinking, generates innovation and embraces change.

Yet cohesive diversity has its own challenges – the key one that of unconscious bias. How can we celebrate diversity and the creativity it generates when negativity underpins its advances?

This course addresses the importance of cultural competence, the persistent problem of biases and stereotypes, and the ‘how’ employers and co-workers have to learn to work together toward the organisation’s goals.

‘Unconcious Bias and its Effects on Diversity and Inclusion’ will discuss how inclusive practices are an essential compliment to diversity in the workplace and define many exclusive behaviours that can serve as a barrier, including harbouring an implicit bias, perpetuating stereotypes, discrimination, and microaggressions.

It will also recommend useful conversational techniques to address biased statements made in the workplace.
