About the Course

All employees, teams, and organizations exhibit bias, a term that refers to a preference for or against a thing, person, or group compared with another. Sometimes we are aware of our biases, but a surprising number of the decisions we make at work are motivated by biases outside of our direct awareness. These often include automatic, implicit judgments about people and groups who are different from us. Unconscious biases are conditioned through life’s hidden curriculum as we pick up emotionally charged pieces of information during our upbringing, through everyday experiences, while watching the news, and scrolling through social media. Unconscious biases are harmful because they produce innumerable organizational inequities for traditionally marginalized populations. These include the decreased likelihood that certain groups are hired, presented with professional growth opportunities, considered for promotion, included in informal networks, and rewarded fairly for performance. Unconscious biases also hurt teams and organizations, which benefit from divergent perspectives that can lead to new and innovative strategies. This workshop will introduce you to an Organization Development approach that can transform unconscious biases across all levels of the organization, including individuals, teams, and the organization itself.
