Unconscious Bias

Unconscious Bias

Unconscious bias training is a popular method used by many organisations to address the problem of discrimination or exclusion in recruitment and management. The success of this method, however, is contested. While we know that everyone has some unconscious prejudice, there is no one proven way of measuring or reducing it.

The following resources provide more information on what unconscious bias is, what the debates are, and what things you can look out for in your own organisation.
