Grow Your Organizational Culture with Implicit Bias Training
Implicit bias. What is it, exactly? That’s a question that people ask themselves when they hear those words. Implicit bias, or unconscious bias, is the thoughts and feelings we have in an unconscious and unaware state that affect – positively or negatively – our actions and attitudes towards people or stereotypes. These biases are developed from a foundation of factors, ranging from childhood experiences to the people we are in repeated contact with.
Due to these different experiences and varying cultural backgrounds, we all harbor implicit bias. The positive news is that increased bias awareness training can aid in developing an inclusive culture that helps to cut down on the amount of bias. A lack of training can have severe negative impacts on the culture of your organization and its reputation. That is why TTA provides exceptional implicit bias training that ensures your organization is receiving the most effective training strategy. We realize that implicit bias training results don’t happen overnight, and a continued repeat effort is the most effective way to obtain a successful training program.
