We all have unconscious biases, and they are a natural process designed to help us speeding up our decision-making processes. However, they can also cause us to make inaccurate positive or negative assumptions about the people around us, and cause us to treat them unfairly or put them at a disadvantage.
In a 2019 Deloitte study of 3,000 workers, 39% said they experience bias at least once a month, and 68% stated that experiencing or witnessing bias has negatively affected their productivity. For this reason, we must all understand and recognise what our unconscious biases are and take steps to prevent them from affecting our personal and business lives, and the lives of those around us.
This course is designed for anyone who could benefit from a better understanding of unconscious bias, regardless of their role or sector, but is of particular interest to those who work with large numbers of people, such as recruiters, managers and human resources staff.
