UNCONSCIOUS BIAS IN THE WORKPLACE

Unconscious bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions and decisions on an unconscious basis. It refers to the feelings and attitudes we have toward people or groups. While unintentional, these biases can influence every aspect of an organization or team from hiring and promotions to day-to-day team interactions. You will learn how unconscious bias impacts workplace interaction and decisions, how to recognize and manage biases and use techniques for addressing potential bias. In addition, the course will cover the perspectives of others. WDT-185.
