Countering Bias in the Workplace

COURSE ID: ILRHR527

Course Overview

In this course, you will learn about perceptual and psychological processes that impact the way that individuals interact with people who are demographically dissimilar from them. You will examine psychological processes that impact personnel decision making within organizations. This understanding will help HR professionals to design better practices and will help line managers to more effectively leverage the potential among employees from diverse backgrounds.

The course will also help you understand why “Diversity” is now often referred to as “Diversity & Inclusion” by explaining what inclusion is and how it differs from diversity. Why is inclusion so important, and what are its building blocks? This course is intended for HR professionals with 0-5 years of experience and global professionals from a diverse range of organizations, including for profits large and small, NGOs, and governmental agencies. This includes people who are seeking to enter the HR field, typically from an administrative, accounting, or payroll-related job. Anyone in HR with responsibility for designing HR practices and/or personnel decision making; any professional with direct reports working within a diverse context and professionals with interest in practicing within the diversity and inclusion space would also benefit.
