Mindfulness Training for Unconscious Bias
A Mindful Approach to Addressing Bias
Leaders recognize the need to address racial and other forms of inequity in the workplace now more than any other time in our history. Companies are examining their Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategies and seeking solutions to foster a more inclusive workforce. But many organizations are missing a critical piece of the puzzle.
Unconscious bias education is incomplete unless it addresses cognitive processes that underlie prejudice . Mindfulness training is a key ingredient.
Although awareness of bias is not a solution, it is the first step toward mitigation and mindfulness training targets awareness. The fact that biases are, by their nature, unconscious, makes them difficult to perceive, let alone mitigate. Designed for leaders and teams committed to fostering an inclusive work culture, this training:
- Examines the nature of unconscious bias and its impact in the workplace
- Explores the science behind mindfulness and how it interrupts automatic, habitual responses.
- Promotes higher performance by individuals, teams and ultimately the organization
The benefit potential among teams and in workplace cultures who are trained in mindfulness is huge. In addition to helping to reduce bias, other benefits of mindfulness include:
- resilience and effectiveness
- productivity and performance
- job satisfaction
- stress reduction and anxiety
- critical thinking and concentration
- enhanced sleep quality
- sense of joy and well-being
Although conversations about bias can be daunting, leaders can and should tackle these issues head on. Doing so can ultimately improve staff wellness, support worker retention, and foster a more inclusive environment.
