Unconscious Biases – From Awareness to ActionFree
About this course
Over 90% of our perception and decision-making processes take place unconsciously. For some decisions this is helpful, but for others this automatism leads to unconscious bias.
Unconscious biases are stumbling blocks to diversity in a company, for example, when talents with different backgrounds taken less into account during recruiting or are promoted too little.
The training aims to make managers aware of their unconscious biases, helps them to recognize their own prejudices and perception filters and to develop options for action for a more objective and conscious perception.
