Interrupting Unconscious Bias for Supervisors

Unconscious bias (also known as implicit bias) can hurt morale, productivity, and innovation when it happens among employees. When it sneaks into critical workplace personnel and management decisions, it can be costly for your company in terms of lawsuits and discrimination charges. This course will benefit all managers, supervisors, and workplace leaders who are tasked with recruiting, hiring, and evaluating performance. Building on the concepts and strategies presented in “Recognizing and Overcoming Unconscious Bias,” this course offers strategies for eliminating unconscious bias from personnel decisions and how to recognize and counteract microaggressions that often stem from unconscious bias. After completing this course, supervisors should be able to identify their own unconscious biases and “interrupt” them when making critical personnel management decisions.

We all have unconscious biases (also known as implicit biases) that affect our interactions with others and how we view the world. These unconscious biases can have a negative effect in the workplace when they go unchecked. This course will benefit everyone who interacts with coworkers, customers, or anyone else as part of their job. After completing this course, learners will be able to identify and address their own unconscious biases and take steps to “interrupt” them when communicating and interacting with others in the workplace.
