Unconscious bias occurs due to our ability to make instant, intuitive decisions about people and situations. Our brains categorise information and places data into groups. This capability generally serves us well, as it helps us to identify whether someone is a danger to us or not and means that we are not stressed by constantly having to make conscious decisions for every given scenario.
Although this ability to make intuitive decisions is a useful shortcut, it can lead to us stereotyping or pre-judging people or situations, which means that we are unwittingly making biased decisions. In general, this may escape unnoticed, but in the workplace, it can become quite damaging.
This Unconscious Bias E-Learning course will give your learners all the knowledge they need to raise awareness of their bias while establishing methods of ensuring any unconscious bias is countered by processes that help to eliminate the possibility of decisions being affected.
The e-learning is very flexible and can be added to an organisation’s intranet or learning management system, ready to be used by their employees. The benefits are huge, and you only ever pay once for the package making it extremely cost-effective.
We can also provide this e-learning course on a subscription model, whereby the course is hosted by us and you pay only per user. Please take a look at the payment options at the bottom of this page.

E-Learning Course Content:
Raise awareness of unconscious bias and develop processes and techniques to help avoid bias in the workplace.
Our unconscious mind is able to process information very quickly and it relies on patterns and shortcuts that we’ve created from our past personal experiences to interpret data quickly and react based on it. This type of thinking is important, as our brains would be overwhelmed by the amount of data we need to process if it didn’t make some shortcuts. However, these shortcuts can also lead to poor and even discriminatory choices.
The concept of unconscious bias becomes increasingly important when making decisions at work, where it is essential that choices are made fairly and not based on any bias, whether unconscious or not.
This unconscious bias e-learning course sets out to provide your learners with all the skills and knowledge they need to effectively raise awareness of their biases, helping them to consider whether they are making choices fairly and providing them with tools that will help to avoid unconscious bias creeping into their decision making.
Unconscious bias affects us all and people have become increasingly aware of the topic due to a growing awareness of the need for a diverse workforce. Therefore, this e-learning course is suitable for a wide array of learners. That may include:
