Unlocking Unconscious Bias

Whether we like it or not, we tend to form opinions about people without being aware of it. For instance, we may have biases relating to gender, age, race or physical appearance.

When we want to create inclusive and diverse workplaces, we need to understand those biases first. With this understanding we can put strategies in place to reduce the impact of our implicit biases.

In-house delivery of tailored unlocking unconscious bias course – delivered at your office

Ask us how we can tailor our Unlocking Unconscious Bias training course in-house to any size group: from one-on-one to conferences with hundreds of people. We are able to design a program that matches your audience, objectives, budget and available time. We deliver our courses all over Australia, including Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and abroad.

The advantage of in-house delivery is that we can tailor the:

  • content to suit your organisation’s needs. For some organisations we have tailored the program to improve their recruitment processes. For other clients we have worked with their leadership teams to create a diverse workplace through unconscious bias limiting strategies. Ask us how we tailor the program to your needs.
  • delivery to reflect your procedures, values, examples and terminology. This enhances relevancy and application back to the workplace.
  • duration to suit the availability of your team members and your budget. We have delivered short presentations on unconscious bias and we have delivered longer unconscious bias training workshops, sometimes combining the topic with bullying and harassment training or with diversity training.

Tailoring is mostly for free and always economical as costs are based on a per day delivery and not per participant.

Coaching – one-on-one – Unlocking Unconscious Bias

We regularly conduct one-on-one training and coaching sessions with employees or managers to boost their skills and overcome specific challenges individuals may have. We will take a brief from a representative in the organisation and create a coaching plan. In many cases, we find that one session is sufficient to turnaround tough situations. In other circumstances, multiple sessions are needed to achieve the agreed objectives.
