The UC Managing Implicit Bias Series is a six-course online training series designed to increase awareness of implicit bias and reduce its impact at the University.
The series reinforces the UC diversity, equity, and inclusion values that enable the University to attract and retain a top talent workforce, and it further supports the UC commitment to developing effective leaders and managers of people. It is intended to supplement existing location programs and resources.
Employees may complete individual courses, or the entire series. Those who complete all six online courses will receive the UC Systemwide HR Managing Implicit Bias Certificate. The series will also be added as a core requirement to the existing UC Systemwide People Management Series and Certificate. As a UC People Manager, being aware of implicit bias and how it impacts the way we work and interact with others is especially important.
The series contains the following six self-paced, online interactive courses. Each course is 15 to 20 minutes in length:
- What is Implicit Bias?
- The Impact of Implicit Bias
- Common Forms of Bias
- Managing the Influence of Implicit Bias: Awareness
- Managing the Influence of Implicit Bias: Mindfulness and Conscious De-biasing
- Managing Implicit Bias in the Hiring Process
