Beyond Unconscious Bias - Our innovative branching video course
Beyond Unconscious Bias training – the next level
For those who may not be familiar with the term, micro-inequities are those tiny behaviours (gestures, tone, and actions) or use of language (words) that can make others feel excluded and not treated as fairly as others.
Examples can range from actions like greeting one person more warmly than others or interrupting a colleague in mid-sentence, to taking credit for someone else’s work and repeatedly cancelling meetings with a colleague. These are just a few examples of the types of negative behaviours that cumulatively build-up to create a workplace environment that feels friendly to some but pervasively hostile to others.
The challenge for us as Inclusion and Diversity specialists is to ensure that organisations are able to recognise when these subtle behaviours can manifest in the workplace, and deliver effective strategies to mitigate their effects and take our unconscious bias training to the next level.
Following on from our best-selling course on Unconscious Bias that was written in partnership with the ENEI, Marshall’s is proud to announce our much-anticipated follow-up course ‘Beyond Unconscious Bias’ – watch the trailer here.
Utilising the branching videos, this course will take learners on a journey to examine the more subtle behaviours that generate micro-inequities between others, and how this can have serious impacts upon individuals, team working, creativity and ultimately profitability.
You do not have to have completed our first course on unconscious bias in order to understand the principles underpinning this sequel as learners will be guided through the foundational aspects of unconscious bias. They will then explore the concepts and impacts of micro-inequities using the medium of interactive storytelling, where every decision they make will have a unique outcome on the branching storylines.
This immersive training follows the story of a team of professionals working together to build a new website. As the personalities clash and deadlines loom, you will be asked to select from a range of options how the team leader should respond to correct team members’ (and her own) interactions and biases. The success or failure of the project will depend upon whether the learner effectively integrated these lessons and chooses the correct responses.
Learners will be able to actively participate, putting their knowledge of unconscious bias and micro-inequities to the test in a challenging simulation that is both thought-provoking and convincing. This module will enable learners to:
- Realise bias is instinctive and immediate
- Appreciate that bias can have a cumulative impact
- Acknowledge that we behave differently towards different people
- Explore different types of bias and their impact
- Describe what micro-behaviours are and how they manifest, both positively and negatively through our behaviour and decision making
- Demonstrate the impact of micro-behaviours on individuals
- Ensure processes minimise the risk of bias in decision making
- Informally mentor people from ‘out-groups’ by choosing to consciously include
- Apply strategies for mitigating the influence of bias and micro-inequities.

This course is split into 3 parts:
Exploring the nature of micro-inequities – what they are, how they perpetuate biases, their effects and mitigation strategies to minimise their influence.
An exploration into our interactive branching dramas where you can see the immediate impact our biases can have on the success or failure of our decision-making processes.
