Online Unconscious Bias Awareness

Your background, personal experiences, societal stereotypes and cultural context can have an impact on your decisions and actions without you realising. This is called unconscious bias.

Online Unconscious Bias Awareness


Our Unconscious Bias course describes what unconscious bias is and how it influences behaviour both inside and outside the workplace. It outlines some common types of unconscious bias and techniques for how to recognise and manage bias to help promote equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace and in wider society.

“Implicit or unconscious bias happens by our brains making incredibly quick judgments and assessments of people and situations without us realising. Our biases are influenced by our background, cultural environment and personal experiences. We may not even be aware of these views and opinions or be aware of their full impact and implications.” Advance HE (
