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.
It’s important, however, not to label all bias in the workplace as unconscious bias, as doing so may subtly imply that bias is beyond our control. We believe that bias is something everyone can and should work to address.
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?
Ideally, leaders are able to see everything and everyone for who they are — without their perceptions being limited by the disconnecting biases in their brains.
Our answer to conventional bias training, Beyond Bias™ can help. 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 from it.

“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.”
