“What comes after unconscious bias” – New e-learning intervention
11th October 2019
Marshall E-Learning launched “Becoming an inclusive organisation” last week at the Diversity Leaders exhibition in London. All participants at the event have been given a single complimentary licence to this new training programme.
With over 80 organisations using Marshall E-Learning for unconscious bias e-learning, we have partnered with Dan Robertson from Vercida Consulting to write the next step for clients who want to move beyond awareness raising, to implementing inclusive practices within their management practices.
Dan Robertson speaks on the journey behind the making of the new course:
“I was delighted to speak at Diversity Leaders this week and launch this new training programme with Marshalls. So many companies ask me for a road map for inclusion so we have created a resource that helps managers, who after all create the culture in an organisation, to become more inclusive”.
David Marshall of Marshall E-Learning:
“It is one thing for us to be aware we are all biased and another to realise this has an impact in the workplace, particularly if we are in a position of influence. Our clients asked us for guidance on practical steps to mitigate bias in the workplace and we believe this e-learning module provides exactly that”.
The new course delves into several areas that can be influenced through unconscious bias and that play a part overall in becoming an inclusive organisation. Topics covered include the need to; trust all team members, provide equal opportunities to everyone, recruit inclusively and use emotional intelligence to manage inclusively as well as to reduce conflict. The course aims to demonstrate how organisations need to be aware of their bias, and need to become inclusive throughout the organisation in order to grow to their potential. Organisations with above-average gender diversity and levels of employee engagement outperform companies with below-average diversity and engagement by 46% to 58%, demonstrating the change possible with a more inclusive organisation.
In 2017 the company teamed up with Dan Robertson to create Vercida Consulting.com. Widely recognized as an expert on unconscious bias and inclusive leadership, Dan is driven by a passion to constructively challenge existing organisational norms and ways of working, by offering an evidence-based approach to inclusive culture change. To date Vercida Group has helped millions of people find the right employment and it is Europe’s largest diversity and inclusion-focused careers website. Fast forward to 2019 Vercida Group is now a global leader in inclusion management.
