Unconscious Bias

Course Summary

An overview of unconscious bias


Unconscious bias happens when our brains make incredibly quick assessments of people and situations without us realising. These biases are influenced by our background, cultural environment and personal experiences. This is all totally normal and indeed in many cases very useful. What we learn however is that issues such as gender, race and age bias aren’t the work of nasty consciously biased people, but the consequence of the unconscious programming in both men and women. Therefore the only way to make change happen is for us all to become conscious of and then own our biases.


  • A multi-dimensional map of unconscious bias
  • The neuroscience of bias
  • Cultural conditioning towards gender, age, race, social status, height, dress, religion, competence
  • How to making the unconscious conscious
