Unconscious Bias Training

Creating a more inclusive culture

One of the most important ways an organisation can improve its approach to diversity and inclusion is to ensure leaders are capable of identifying and addressing unconscious bias within the workplace. Frankly Diversity has designed an unconscious bias training program based upon the following principles:

Research and Science based: The content delivered in the workshop is based upon best-practice diversity and inclusion research and neuro-leadership science. This provides an evidence-based approach to what can sometimes be considered a ‘soft’ topic.

Practical tools for change: The training will include several relevant case studies as well as opportunities to brainstorm practical applications. Leaders who complete the workshop will be equipped with a suite of tools, ideas, stories and peer support network to immediately effect change within your organisation.

Willingness to be challenged: Leaders must be willing to be challenged to gain maximum benefit from the course. The biggest hurdle regarding unconscious bias is being able to identify when biases are at play – both within ourselves and in others. This is challenging and requires vulnerability and deep self-analysis.
