Also known as implicit biases, these are the mental shortcuts all our brains make when we’re navigating the day. These shortcuts are based on what we’ve observed in the world around us: the advertisements we’ve seen, the television we watch, the books we’ve read, and the common sayings we’ve heard throughout our lives. And unfortunately, those observations often include stereotypes. If we aren’t aware of — or don’t manage these unconscious biases, we’re likely to make decisions that are influenced by them. While we can’t eliminate it altogether, helping employees learn how to manage unconscious bias is critical to building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
Whether you’re a global, distributed workforce or a growing startup, Paradigm can help you meet your DEI goals. We know what really drives change, and have designed an approach that both raises awareness and motivates your employees to adjust their behaviors.
Our Unconscious Bias training options include:
Online Unconscious Bias Training
With Paradigm Reach, you can deliver a three-part Managing Unconscious Bias course and additional microlearning on topics like Calling Out Bias, The Relationship Between Unconscious Bias and Racism, and The Impact of Unconscious Bias on Customers.
Live, Expert-led Unconscious Bias Workshops
Our world-leading DEI experts can facilitate live discussions on unconscious bias and help your employees apply what they learn to their everyday work.
Resources That Translate Learning to Action
We have checklists for managing unconscious bias in a variety of scenarios, from collaborating with colleagues to hiring to interacting with customers.
After a Paradigm Unconscious Bias training, 96% of people understand unconscious bias and 74% commit to at least two behaviors to mitigate it. Our training will help your employees:
how unconscious bias undermines effective decision-making, collaboration, and management
where unconscious bias might emerge in their day-to-day work
in specific behaviors that create more effective leaders, more productive teams, and a more inclusive organizational culture
