What is unconscious bias, and how does it affect your interactions and decisions? Research suggests that diverse teams may be more productive but are often less connected. Why? The attitudes and biases we carry that we’re not even aware of can dictate our perceptions of ourselves and others. This influences our behavior, both at work and in life.
In this class, you will:
- Learn how unconscious bias impacts beliefs, values and actions and contributes to organizational cultures that either foster or stifle diversity and inclusion
- Better understand your personal unconscious biases to foster more genuine interactions
- Consciously choose to create a workplace that encourages authenticity and inclusion
