Unconscious Bias training – what’s the alternative?

Unconscious bias training - what's the alternative?

Research shows that unconscious bias training reinforces stereotypes rather than eliminating them (Don’t Give Up on Unconscious Bias Training — Make It Better; HBR – 2017). This is because people often end up becoming defensive about their views rather than using this knowledge about bias to adapt how they make their daily decisions.

On the 2nd of December 2022, In Diverse Company hosted a virtual roundtable discussion on the topic of ‘Unconscious Bias – what’s the alternative?’. In this panel, we listened to a variety of experiences and insights across sectors and different markets, including the US, India and the UK. We discussed what initiatives and approaches the attendees had taken to support behaviour change, what worked and what could have been done differently to achieve greater impact.
