Unconscious Bias: Online Training

Providing employees with unconscious bias training is a positive step towards creating a respectful, inclusive workplace culture. We each have unconscious biases and we take these biases to work with us. Left unaddressed, they undermine logical decision-making and contribute to a toxic workplace, where respect and opportunity are not equally distributed. Unconscious Bias Training is self-paced and practical. It helps learners deepen their understanding of unconscious biases and explores ways to mitigate the effects of unconscious biases in the workplace.

You can purchase one or more units of this DEI course now and start training right away. But if you're purchasing training for your organization, we recommend setting up an employer account first. Employers get a discount of 20% or more plus a FREE employer console that makes it easy to order, distribute, and manage diversity and inclusion training.

Easy to follow

"As we began hiring staff quite quickly a few months back, I wanted to ensure that we as a company were remaining as impartial as possible when reviewing job applicants. This course made me question the way we do things and gave me actionable points that we could implement. It was also very easy to follow.
