Unconscious Bias

Unconscious Bias

Everyone has unconscious biases. They live in the recesses of the human brain without us realizing it. These biases are grown in each individual and can greatly influence the day to day decisions that are made both at home and at work.

Our Unconscious Bias workshop will introduce your participants to the ideas and techniques for defining and understanding different unconscious biases. It will show the effects that these biases have on the culture and the business practices of a company. The workshop will also cover the steps to introduce a successful unconscious bias training program in your organization.
