Understanding Unconscious Bias Course

Unconscious Bias Awareness

Short Course for Business

OVERVIEW

In this Unconscious Bias Course, participants will become more aware of how they may make snap decisions about new people, how they may respond unconsciously, and what they need to do to create a better, more inclusive environment.

Every human being makes immediate, snap decisions about new people. It is purely instinctual and happens faster than we can comprehend, as quickly as 30 milliseconds. This process is called Unconscious Bias.

Part of the bodies defence mechanism is to make these immediate decisions about people, to try and understand if it is safe. It is also a way to speed up new interactions; we cannot possibly process everything we initially take in about a new person. The brain will subconsciously categorise based on gender, age, race, weight, attractiveness and disability. Along with this, our past experiences will also play a part, so that the brain also looks for familiar patterns of language, accent, nationality, religion and education. Social Psychologists call this part of the process Social Categorisation.

These unconscious decisions we make about someone’s character will then help create a bias, whether good or bad, towards them. Unconscious bias cannot be totally stopped, but we can learn how to use logical thought to ensure that we don’t let it impact negatively in the workplace.

  • Identify what Unconscious Bias is.
