The best way to reduce unconscious biases is to become aware of them. Awareness training is typically the first step in this process to help recognise that nobody is immune to unconscious bias.

Undertake one of the Harvard Implicit Association Tests (IAT) to become more aware of your own biases. You can test your implicit attitudes on a range of topics including religion, age, disability, gender-career, sexuality, race and others. The Harvard Implicit Association Test is one of the most effective online tools to gain greater awareness of one’s own biases, by measuring the strength of your associations between concepts.

To learn more about the role of unconscious bias, how this can impact our decision-making and how tackling unconscious biases support our business case for staff diversity, Monash staff can also undertake the Inclusive Leadership training.
