|Event Introduction||Biases are inclinations that people hold towards a particular idea, individual, group or belief. They can cause us to act favourably or unfavourably towards groups of people based on characteristics that we perceive them to possess. Unconscious bias is not intentional but it can affect everyday decisions and interactions.
At Achieving for Children, we are committed to valuing difference and diversity in our workforce and in the children and families we work with, so that their identities are promoted and their individual needs can be met.
This elearning course gives a clear insight into the development and impact of unconscious bias, and provides an understanding of the benefits of awareness.
This course is intended for staff who work in all sectors of business. It provides information and advice to help employees become more aware of their own unconscious biases, as well as for employers to minimise unconscious bias in the workplace.
After you have signed up via CPD Online, you will receive a separate enrolment email via Me Learning with the link to the elearning course.
|Event Content||We all have some unconscious biases. However, in the workplace, these can affect decisions around recruitment, staff development and recognition, which can all lead to a less diverse and productive workforce.
Recognising and identifying these unconscious biases are the first step to overcoming them. By reflecting on possible biases, individuals can start to challenge them and introduce steps to reduce and eliminate bias from their actions.

• What is bias?
