Unconscious bias training is grounded in a commitment to the advantages of workforce diversity, which include fostering increased creativity, enhancing teamwork, and achieving exemplary customer service and community relations.
Our perceptions are unique, based on our past knowledge, experience, and cultural norms and assumptions. How might trainers’ biases, inaccurate perceptions, assumptions and expectations affect the success of training and impede in successful learning?
To address unintentional bias, we need to foster intentional behaviors that create change. Here are strategies, informed by clinical psychology, that both men and women can put it into practice every day to create a more equal working environment.
Intent is the motivation or purpose behind our action. Although our intent may be good, if it is not communicated well or the behavior that follows doesn’t match it, then the outcome will not go as planned.
BiasSync today launched its proprietary tool to assess unconscious bias in large corporations and government agencies. The Los Angeles startup provides organizations and their leaders with aggregated, actionable data and professional development content.
Every human being – including every employee at your company – has biases. When business decisions are influenced by unconscious bias, it can have a major impact on the diversity and culture of your company.
