Unconscious Bias Training Course

Unconscious bias is the tendency to perceive people or events in a certain way when we make 'snap' decisions or assessments about them.

This can impact how we work with others and our decisions, resulting in illegal, discriminatory behaviour.

Our Unconscious Bias Training Course helps your employees understand unconscious bias and the impact that it can have at work. It also explains the measures to combat this potentially illegal behaviour.

We have a companion Unconscious Bias for Managers Training Course for those in leadership positions.
