Unconscious Bias in the Workplace
Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about groups of people that individuals unintentionally form. Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about assorted social and identity groups. In the workplace, acting on these unconscious biases can not only be disruptive but illegal.
Areas Covered During Training:
1. Interrupting unconscious bias by first understanding it.
2. Review laws that make it illegal to make decisions in employment - whether consciously or unconsciously based on a person’s mental or physical differences.
3. Highlight areas that employers should review and consider changing or adding. These range from equal opportunity and hiring practices to anti-harassment policies, employee dress codes and the recent June 2020 Supreme Court ruling on gender identity and sexual orientation at work.
4. Employee and manager training of the aforementioned.
Why Should You Attend:
Employers and their management team will be wise to prepare for and make changes to policies, procedures and official or unofficial practices that could find them in a legal hot seat.
