Unconscious Bias Training for Managers

UK equality law defines nine protected characteristics, and if our bias results in discrimination based on these, it is illegal.

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 unconscious bias from their teams.

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