Unconscious Bias Training for Managers

UK equality law defines nine protected characteristics, and bias based on these qualities is discriminatory and illegal.

And beyond this, unconscious bias can lead to segregation. Those feeling left out may become demotivated, affecting the productivity of your whole team.

Our Unconscious Bias for Managers Training Course will help your leaders understand its impact and how to eliminate it from their teams.

We all have a general Unconscious Bias Course for all staff.
