Unconscious Bias in Recruitment - Challenging your stereotypes

Recommended for: managers, supervisors and HR professionals

Unconscious bias refers to humans' natural preference for people who look like us, sound like us and share our interests. These natural preferences impact on organisational behaviour at various stages, but particularly during recruitment. Unconscious biases are natural and out of our conscious control, unless we are aware of them.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • understand what is meant by the term 'unconscious bias'
  • understand how unconscious bias leads to stereotyping and discrimination during recruitment
  • challenge their own stereotypes and develop tactics for overcoming unconscious bias
