Product Description

Proven Results | 3x Increase in Bias Acceptance | Measure Your Organization’s Positive Change

Every day, in workplaces everywhere, people ask questions, make assumptions, or take actions they feel are innocent or even well-intentioned but which disrespect others. This course provides powerful examples of what these occurrences, or “microaggressions,” look and feel like – reminding us that until we do the work of identifying and challenging our biases, we run the risk of offending others and blocking efforts to create a culture of equity, inclusion and respect.   

Unintentional Still Hurts: Overcoming Unconscious Bias will help your organization:

  • Measure change in employees' acceptance of bias while also providing a way to compare your organization's bias acceptance level with others nationally.
  • Overcome resistance and misconceptions by giving the science behind bias and portraying how bias and microaggressions hurt people—even when unintentional.
  • Immediately minimize the impact of implicit bias through instruction that encourages personal reflection and enables learners to recognize and challenge their biases.
  • Inspire positive change (not fear and avoidance) by reminding learners that while biases may lead us to say or do the wrong thing, these mistakes (when handled correctly) can generate meaningful dialogue and increased understanding.
  • Encourage people to be allies with instruction on how to speak up on behalf of another person when you witness explicit or implicit bias or microaggression.
  • Educate managers on their role in creating a culture of respect and give them a practical way to handle employee concerns regarding microaggressions and disrespectful conduct
