Having an unconscious bias doesn’t make you a bad person—it just means you’re human. When most people think of bias, they think of a negative action taken deliberately. But there are unconscious or implicit biases that can affect your behavior or decisions without you realizing it. Unconscious biases are often based on mistaken, inaccurate, or incomplete information. These biases can have a significant impact on our workplaces, shaping who gets recruited, hired, and promoted.
It’s possible, however, to interrupt bias. The first step is awareness. This program will focus on how we interrupt our unconscious brain and tune-in to be more conscious of our thought process and decision making.
