Unconscious Bias Training

Unconscious bias training – 26 years of knowledge and expertise

Our bespoke unconscious bias training courses draw on over a quarter-century of experience in building fair practice in employment and career progression. Overcoming unconscious bias is critical to external perceptions of you as a company of integrity, credibility and consistency, and a great place to work.

From design to delivery, we focus your training on practical, outcome-based activities and strategic future-proofing. Our positive and practical workshops will give even the most experienced manager new insight into the associations and assumptions – not matter how subtle or unintentional – that may affect the decisions we make.

We offer flexible ways to deliver training through: workshops, 1:1 facilitation, group webinars and group learning online. We also offer experiential acted scenarios that can be designed bespoke to support your journey in tackling unconscious bias in the workplace. Learn how EW Group can assist you and your organisation to cultivate an inclusive culture at work and safeguard against prejudice.

Experiential actor-based unconscious bias training from EW Group

Successful diversity management depends on bringing unconscious bias to life in innovative ways. Our unconscious bias training programmes are built around experiential learning to more meaningfully engage your workforce with addressing unconscious bias in all its forms. In live actor-based workshops, we use intelligently scripted scenarios to highlight what so often stays hidden in the workplace. The difference-maker: your delegates will experience the realities of unconscious bias first-hand, up close and personal.

EW Group clients love our sessions using actors. Our scenarios help them to not only see but also experience how subtle disadvantage works, and the emotional impact it has on individuals. By experiencing unconscious bias for themselves in new and surprising ways, your staff can then set about driving genuine culture change on their return to work.

Watch the video below for an example of our actor-based scenarios on unconscious bias in the workplace. How do you think the conversation goes? Would you change anything?

Another feature of our actor-based unconscious bias training is our candid scenarios. An example: at one of our events at the Shard in London, we stationed actors in the lift to have a conversation as our delegates arrived. One of the actors plays a woman just back from maternity leave, asking to be part of a new project team. Her manager (our other actor) doesn’t handle the situation well, and our delegates overhear the whole thing. They then arrived at our event with bad practice ringing in their ears, until we revealed the actors – prompting further lively discussion and a live re-working with the actors of how the manager could have approached things better.
