Unconscious Bias for All Staff

Challenging unconscious bias in the workplace

Our unconscious bias e-learning courses use practical, engaging activities to develop your staff and managers’ ability and confidence to work more inclusively.

Developing genuine awareness of how unconscious bias operates – and practical tools to overcome it – will allow your business to make the most of the diversity at its disposal. Our e-learning explores not only the science and theory of unconscious bias but also what your people can do about it day in, day out.

We use acted video content to show typical workplace scenarios in which unconscious bias might appear. We check and test understanding along the way and provide practical takeaways that your staff can begin using immediately at work.

This approach is proven to be effective in changing attitudes and behaviours: our recent course for global recruiters Harvey Nash demonstrated a 96% increase in understanding and confidence around unconscious bias. The programme won the Nimble eLearning Course of Year Award for 2017.

"Diversity and inclusion has become a common language in the business over the past 12 months. The custom e-learning developed by EW Group was a new departure for us but it has had a noticeable effect on our ability to self-reflect and be aware about unconscious bias. The e-learning was embraced by everyone in the company. Working with EW Group enabled us to communicate key messages, new ideas and fresh approaches. The response has been great."Lisa Jobson, Former Director of Talent at Harvey Nash

Unconscious bias e-learning with practical outcomes

  • Clearly articulate their commitment to overcoming unconscious bias in the workplace
  • Acknowledge the subtle ways in which unconscious bias plays out at work
  • Feel clear about the various aspects within their roles that may be prone to unconscious bias (in decision making, for example)
  • Identify opportunities to promote diversity best practice and cultural adaptability
  • Employ a set of practical tools and action plans to address unconscious bias, assumption and stereotyping wherever they work.

 

We encourage all participants to consider the implications that wider difference (for example, social class) has on the decisions they make. We focus on what can be done, given that we all have biases.

In practical terms, this will mean building individual awareness of unconscious bias, developing an understanding of its impact in the workplace, and giving learners a series of practical strategies, they can apply to their daily decision-making.
