| E-Learning on Workplace Unconscious Bias:
If you work in an organisation where human capital is critical to business success, then diversity of thought is essential for responding to your customers and following the wider market for long term success.
Diversity of thought is a direct result of diversity of people. But unconscious bias, which affects all of us, means we tend to like people who look like us, think like us and come from backgrounds similar to ours. Unconscious Bias can create self-defeating choices and behaviours that unintentionally block diversity in your organisation.
Increasingly clients are asking for diversity in their supply chain – a challenge for many organisations. Getting the best people, irrespective of background, goes beyond compliance and regulatory responsibilities – but is as vital to get right.
InclusIQ’s unconscious bias e-learning covers managing and mitigating risk from unconscious bias during recruitment, promotion and succession discussions. This helps ensure that you hire and retain the best people for your business.
What are the risks?
Ensuring everyone has access to unconscious bias training reduces the risk of:
- misinterpretations between colleagues and ill will
- potential discrimination suits
- bad management decisions
- loss of key talent
Unconscious Bias at InclusIQ
InclusIQ has specialised in workplace inclusion issues and unconscious bias for over 20 years. We’ve now transformed that knowledge into a series of e-learning packages ideally suited for individual learning.
- Understanding Unconscious Bias and How it Hinders Decision-Making
- Making Better Decisions in Recruitment and Hiring

S+W recently worked with InclusIQ to create bespoke e-learning for our partners on the potential for unconscious bias in recruitment and promotion in our firm. We have received really great internal feedback on the e-learning tool, and it is certainly the best I have seen. I found myself still thinking about its lessons long after I had completed the e-learning module – a rarity I”m sure you can appreciate!
