How can we reduce unconscious bias in the workplace?
The answer is that if we aware of our own unconscious bias and are introduced to new processes and tools to minimize the effect of unconscious – we can enhance our decision-making processes substantially.

Research-based knowledge made practically applicable
– conveyed with a high degree of participant involvement.
So what is unconscious bias?
Our brain automatically tells us that we are safe with people who look, think and act similar to us.
That was our survival trick on the savannah and still is useful most of the time today.
The brain uses short-cuts to navigate an incredible amount of information which leads us to make snap decisions about who we prefer and who we avoid.
These automatic preferences and prejudices are what we call ‘biases’. As such, unconscious bias is the #1 contributor to a homogenous work environment and sameness thinking, thus a disabler of diversity and an enemy of innovation.

Why is this important?
In era where different thinking and innovation power is key to secure bottom-line results, our unconscious preferences for people who are like us severely challenge our intentions to create diversified and inclusive work places.
Therefore, understanding our own unintended preferences, enables us to take full control of business decisions, harness the potential of diversity and create innovative teams.
Testimony from people who joined our unconscious bias training:
“If you have a brain you have biases. As a responsible company, believing in inclusive leadership, it is important to us that our managers are aware of when the the auto pilot takes over in decision-making processes.
