Overview

This online course is designed to raise awareness on a very difficult topic: our preferences and our bias. The premise of this course is that unless we explore the nature of relationships, perceptions and prejudices we will never make sufficient progress to create truly diverse and inclusive organisations. It is based on the fact that we are all biased. That is everyone, without exception.

Understanding Unconscious Bias

Features

The first part of the course provides an overview of unconscious bias in terms of how it affects you and others. You will see a number of experiments which help illustrate the way our perceptions filter information and how this impacts on what we see and hear, what we fail to see and hear, and the judgements we make. Becoming more aware of how our brains are wired can help us understand that 'trusting our instincts' can lead to poor decision-making. Once we acknowledge our bias, we can consciously take action to reduce its influence.

The second part of the course covers bias at work through a series of drama scenarios. The scenarios will help you understand how unconscious bias can mpact on the workplace and on working relationships. Although the organisation is fictitious and the context is specific, the human interactions are quite universal, and you’ll learn a lot about biases, and how to counteract biases by studying how these people are interrelating with one another.

Details

The course includes visual illusions which offer a compelling insight into how our brains process information and the shortcuts we take. This is backed up with research evidence.

A drama scenario which shows how even an organisation that prides itself in “‘doing the right thing’” in terms of Diversity can fall under the spell of unconscious bias. Individual scenes look at “pressure points” when bias is more likely to have an impact including recruitment, performance review and induction.

This online course is designed to:

  • Raise awareness of bias in people and organisations
  • Examine the impact of prejudice in decision-making
  • Demonstrate ways in which we can reduce, if not eliminate, bias in our decision-making.

Certificate

A learndirect certificate will be emailed to you on completion of this course.
