As humans, everyone has biases, whether conscious or unconscious. Even today, parts of the workforce are unfairly excluded from experiences and opportunities for which they are qualified. From recruiting and development, to promotions and day-to-day interactions, age, gender, race, disability status, and other biases impact workplace dynamics and decisions. Recognizing bias and having conversations about it can be difficult for leaders and employees alike. Awareness, understanding and knowledge of how to manage situations where bias is making an impact, is crucial to ensuring a fair and inclusive work environment for all.
In this ‘Recognizing Biases’ learning module, learners take on the role of a producer at a fictional large tech company. They are tasked with filling a programmer position with an experienced candidate who can hit the ground running. The learner must interview three candidates and find the right one for the role, while navigating their own biases. They will learn how to identify and mitigate the common biases found in the workplace.
Learners are able to explore bias within the workplace. They will learn how to identify and mitigate gender, age, and racial bias, while discovering their own biases and becoming more aware of it.
