The reality is that all of us can – and probably do – harbour unconscious biases that can all too easily cause discrimination and inequality. But with our new Challenging Unconscious Bias online training course, you can help prevent this from happening. Featuring innovative discovery learning interactions and scenarios, the course enables your staff to recognise and overcome their biases, and provides them with a practical, non-confrontational framework for challenging biased thinking and decisions effectively.
