Unconscious Bias in the Workplace

This self-paced course allows you to reflect on the nature of bias, how it manifests and how it influences your behaviours, attitudes, and decision making. By exploring the science behind bias and different types of bias in the workplace you will be better prepared to recognize bias and understand the implications. Further, our individual and institutional strategies will support you and your organizational growth and continued learning.

Everyone has a role in change. As we better understand our bias we are better prepared to fulfill our role in change. Throughout this course, you will be encouraged to reflect and to continue these complex conversations with colleagues.
