Unconscious Bias Training

Managing Unconscious Bias Online Training Course

Have you ever let a gut feeling persuade you? Of course you have. Many of our decisions are made quickly, because it “feels” right.  So emotional impulse controls rather than deliberate, logical analysis. Our emotions are shortcuts that allow us to sort through reams of implicitly stored brain patterns that guide us either toward or away from a course of action. We don’t have the capacity to calculate all probabilities that come with every choice, and so we rely on our gut feelings to guide us.  And our gut feelings are unconscious bias that creates more opportunity for some and less for others—which directly impacts diversity and inclusion. Our program includes an online course; best practices for learners; a feature that solicits employee commitments; Q and A and data showing trending concerns and areas of opportunity; ongoing micro video lessons and a strategic inclusion strategy session with our talent and inclusion strategist.  

Course Description
This course explains the concept of unconscious bias and shows learners how, if unchecked, their “gut feeling” can lead to some decisions and behaviors that help some people and hinder others. The interactive features of this course capture anonymous learner feedback about perceptions of unconscious bias, as well as the learner commitment to a particular strategy to manage unconscious bias. Your workforce will learn how to make better decisions and will have direct access to Emtrain’s subject matter experts. This allows them to ask workplace questions anonymously via our innovative Expert Q&A feature.
