Diversity & Inclusivity Workshops

Examining Unconscious Bias

We all bring unconscious biases into the workplace. These deeply subconscious attitudes span race, gender, appearance, age, wealth and much more. They influence everything from the neighborhood you live in, to the employee you promote and the one you don t. These biases are reflexively triggered without our knowledge, they are virtually unnoticeable. Our unconscious biases are hidden. Although we are unaware of them they influence our beliefs about and behavior toward others. Microaggressions are often the result of unconscious biases that lead to unintended discrimination against or degradation of those who are socially marginalized in a society, whether for skin color, gender, sexual orientation, age, language, origin, religion, disability, or any other characteristic. Raising our awareness of unconscious bias allows us to rethink the ways in which we approach hiring, inclusion, organizational culture and relationships with stakeholders.

This workshop focuses on the implicit attitudes or stereotypes that shape how we engage others and make decisions in the workplace. The session provides an understanding of how bias is formed in our unconscious, and ways we can disrupt the impact of unconscious patterns on both our individual behavior and on organizational behavior.

Participants will

  • Define unconscious bias;
  • Identify the impact of unconscious bias in the workplace;
  • Identify and use strategies for disrupting or reducing unconscious bias.
