Weekly Video Highlight: Overcoming Unconscious Bias

Unconscious biases refer to the learned stereotypes about a person or group of people that are automatic and unintentional.

There are plenty of studies that prove the existence of unconscious bias – for instance, applicants with traditionally “American” sounding names receive more callbacks on job applications than people with foreign or unusual sounding names.

Doctors, on average, recommend less pain medication for minority patients than for others with identical injuries.

This weekly video highlight from The BizLibrary Collection is designed to help employees recognize their own unconscious biases, and acknowledge how they might affect the way the employee approaches a situation.

For many organizations, providing meaningful training on unconscious bias can bring positive change to the organization in the way they attract and serve customers or handle hiring.
