Beyond Bias™

Overcoming Bias Requires Moving Beyond Awareness and Into Action

Reveal your organization’s full potential by identifying and taking action to conquer unconscious bias in the workplace.

What does it mean to have bias?

Bias is an intentional or unintentional preference for or against a specific group or individual. It occurs as a result of routine mental shortcuts that occur in our brains. Because of this, it’s possible to have bias without being fully aware of it.

Yet, unintentional bias can still have very real consequences, including inaccurate beliefs, unfair treatment of others, and unfavorable reactions.

Moving beyond bias is essential for effective leadership and sustainable and productive workplaces. But how do you create a realistic and effective roadmap for identifying and dealing with the biases we all experience?

Leaders should ideally be able to see everything and everyone for who they are — without their perception being limited by the disconnecting biases in their brain.

Leveraging our decades of research and experience, we help leaders identify — and then take action to break — bias habits. We work with you to increase your team’s understanding and awareness of bias and provide practical tools you can use to protect against the negative consequences of bias.

Imagine the potential of your organization when everyone is fully valued and invested, creating a more inclusive and unbiased culture.

Take Meaningful Action Towards Tackling Unconscious Bias in the Workplace

Help leaders at all levels and functions of an organization in the work of overcoming bias.

Improve your team’s ability to create a culture of inclusion:

  • Gain deeper insight into what bias is and how it impacts all of us.
  • More quickly recognize the presence of their own biases and the biases of others.
  • Develop greater awareness of social identities and how they relate to bias.
  • Acquire tools and strategies for managing and overcoming bias.

Take on unconscious bias in the workplace by equipping your team with these unconscious bias skills. We can deliver our world-class, research-backed overcoming bias content to them — or you can.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Organizations who have partnered with us to offer our Beyond Bias™ training and content consistently tell us the same thing: their experience with CCL made a significant impact on their culture — and their bottom line.

“This program taught me that even when we’re acting from our best intentions, we all have biases to one degree or another. I walked away with the ability to monitor my thoughts and actions more closely, which has been truly eye-opening. I also gained practical tools I started using right away, such as shifting my perspective and reaching out to better understand the social identities of the people I work with.”
