Implicit biases – unconscious attitudes or stereotypes that can negatively influence our actions and decisions towards others – can damage or derail efforts to create great workplaces. Learning to recognize biases as they appear is a key step toward building a more positive, thriving culture.
Organizational leaders must ask themselves essential questions such as:
- How does implicit bias appear in our work culture?
- How is bias preventing us from achieving greater individual and team growth as well as organizational strength, output and competitiveness?
- How do we confront implicit bias now and in the future?
A Tailored Approach
Our Organizational Implicit Bias Training program is designed specifically for organizations in the industries we serve—healthcare and higher education—and can be tailored to the specific DEI goals of your organization. In collaboration with the experienced Ph.D. psychologists at the market-leading firm CMA, the program instructs and engages participants in order to identify and understand their own biases and how these biases can operate across teams and organizations.
The training curriculum is based on the most recent research in psychological science and peer-reviewed literature on the role of implicit bias and is tailored to your organization. The science behind the training is aligned with that endorsed by the American Psychological Association (APA). Workshops can either be done in person with 15-20 attendees per session or via video conferencing. The training begins with an organizational survey, a report summarizing survey findings, and then the workshop tailored to your needs. After the workshop, we follow up with additional resources to reinforce educational objectives for participants.
