Is there any benefit to unconscious bias training in the workplace?

4 answers

  • Changing implicit biases doesn't change explicit behavior.

  • Recognising and managing our biases, while knowing that they don't make us bad people, is a healthy attitude to take.

  • Unconscious bias training has little effect on increasing diversity in workplaces.

  • Unconscious bias training could actually be harmful, since recognising our biases can result in normalising them, making them more prominent.
