2 reviews for Unconscious Bias Learning Lab

  1. One of the things I learned is the ability to peel back the layers around the biases I bring with me. One of the biggest takeaways I can use in my organization is that when we are facilitating work around diversity, inclusion, and unconscious bias, the majority of folks can’t be only taken at face value. It’s only the iceberg; we only see the top but below there is a deeply rooted unconscious bias that comes from so much more that folks have dealt with throughout their entire life. That’s what we really want to get to in order to help them uncover those biases. I think there are lots of techniques and tools I have learned from this session on unconscious bias that I can use in my work.

  2. The people at the core of a business enterprise need to be the first people that go through this training. Through this course, I learned how to help people help themselves without guilt and how to help them realize that there is control over your behavior. I think for us at Target, that when we think about spending time thinking about the issue of bias, understanding your bias, that it’s not bad, there are things you can do to mitigate the risk of it, and mitigation adds value, I get excited about the unlocked potential in our ability to service our guests. What are the ideas, the decisions, the things we could be doing better for our guests that we’re missing out on because bias is getting in the way of us being able to deliver at the highest level? I’m excited about how it could unlock another set of things that help us become competitive in the retail environment.
