Unconscious Bias Training

What is unconscious bias?
  • Our tradition paradigm has generally assumed that
    patterns of discriminatory behaviour are
    conscious that people who know better do the
    right thing, and those who dont cause bias, but
    what if, more times than not, people make choices
    that discriminate against one group and in favour
    of another, without even realizing that they are
    doing it. Interestingly we do this more often
    than we think we do and this is called
    UNCONSIOUS BIAS.

  • We are hard-wired to making unconscious
    decisions about others based on what feels safe,
    likeable, valuable, and competent versus logical
    judgment.

Learning Points
  • Unconscious bias training is based on pervasive
    cultural stereotypes. These run the gamut from
    seemingly positive ideas like Asians being better
    at math to more obviously unfair ones like women
    being less competent than men

  • Unconscious biases can gives some people an
    unfair advantage and puts others at a
    disadvantage. Its often responsible for
    dissatisfaction in the workplace
  • Unconscious bias is just thatunconscious often
    we are not aware of it playing out in our lives.

Some examples of where unconscious biases play
out in life
  • Less than 15 of American men are over six foot
    tall, yet almost 60 of corporate CEOs are over
    six foot tall. Less than 4 of American men are
    over six foot, two inches tall, yet more than 36
    of corporate CEOs are over six foot, two inches
    tall.

  • Why does this happen? Clearly corporate boards do
    not, when conducting a CEO search, send out a
    message to get us a tall guy, and yet the
    numbers speak for themselves. It seems not only
    unfair, but patently absurd to choose a CEO
    because of height, just like it is unfair and
    absurd to give employees lower performance
    evaluations solely because they are overweight.

  • At Tatva Leadership we work with organisations to
    raise this awareness in individuals groups. Our
    workshops challenge mind-sets and help employees
    understand their role in building an inclusive
    workplace with a special focus on attracting
    retaining gender. They aim to hold a mirror,
    invite participation, encourage accountability
    and create a space to explore perceptions and
    attitudes influenced by the unconscious bias.
