Welcome to Unpacking Unconscious Bias in the Workplace! We are often told to "check our biases." But, what does that mean? In this short course, you will take "unpack" unconscious bias by exploring, examining, and identifying bias in an effort to gain a deeper understanding of it. You will peel apart of the layers that make up unconscious bias, then practice ways to mitigate you own biases and disrupt bias in your workplace.

Let's start our course by understanding how personal perspectives and biases are formed. You will identify key factors that shape how you view and interact with the world around you. You will explore how your culture, upbringing, and personal experiences contribute to shaping your unique biases. Finally, you'll have the opportunity to engage in self-reflection, putting theory into practice to better understand the origins and impacts of your own perspectives and biases.
