Benefits of providing this course as a trainer
Unconscious bias is very topical these days as part of a drive towards equality and diversity.
So, it is very likely that your clients will be very interested in providing training to their staff in this area, as part of their equality and diversity training.
Actually, providing training on unconscious bias is seen as the first step toward overcoming this issue in companies. These days, large companies, universities, and government bodies are pushing toward equality and diversity. So, having ‘unconscious bias’ as part of your training materials portfolio as a trainer is definitely a selling point.

How this course helps learners
Unconscious bias training, also sometimes called ‘Implicit bias‘, ‘No bias‘ or ‘Anti-bias‘ training, refers to unintentional stereotypes and judgments (either positive or negative) we all have towards certain groups of people, based on categories such as gender, class, nationality, interests they have and a lot more.
The problem with unconscious bias is that it is ingrained and hard-wired in us but we are not even aware that we are affected by it because it is unconscious.
So, it can be potentially even more harmful than prejudices that we are aware of, exactly because it can go undetected and still do a lot of damage to those who are on the receiving end of negative unconscious bias.
Because of this, it is very important to address unconscious bias, particularly in the workplace. Our unconscious bias training materials are specifically designed to help companies and individuals deal with unconscious bias.
Who Is the Unconscious Bias Training Materials Intended for?
This unconscious bias training materials package is suitable for those who are not familiar with the concept of unconscious bias yet.
People who may benefit from this course include, for example:
- HR departments who want to understand more about how to avoid unconscious bias in activities such as writing company policies and job ads, dealing with staff grievances, and more.
- Members of staff with managerial and/or supervisory responsibility who hire, develop and mentor other members of staff.
- Any member of staff at any level, to improve the way they relate and deal with colleagues from diverse backgrounds.
- 2 to 3 hours (depending on the number of delegates and on how much time you want to spend on each discussion).
The course can also be run as a series of seminars or workshops on equality and diversity, together with, for example, disability etiquette & access awareness training, aimed at guiding people with disabilities through public spaces.
This unconscious bias training materials package is for everyone.
The training can be useful for those who are not yet familiar with the topic, as well as for those who have heard about unconscious bias but would like to know more about how this applies in practice in everyday life.
