About

A new DVD-based course to define, recognize, and reduce bias in the workplace.

Based on the book Making Diversity Work, which Training Magazine praised as “a great resource for anyone seeking to create or refresh their diversity program.”

Bias costs organizations billions in lost productivity, high turnover, and low morale, not to mention the risk of expensive litigation.

Getting rid of bias is within our control. It is not a mystery. It is a choice and we each have the power to make that choice.

This DVD-based course, featuring Dr. Sondra Thiederman, targets the more subtle forms of bias that insidiously undermine our ability to build truly inclusive workplaces. Is It Bias Making Diversity Work can become the cornerstone for new training initiatives in diversity and inclusion or to enhance your existing curriculum.

The course is designed to provide:

  • Skills for identifying bias in oneself and others.
  • Immediately applicable tools for both reducing biases and controlling their impact on how we treat people who are different from ourselves.
  • Practical strategies to help managers deal with subtle and unconscious bias in the workplace.
  • Awareness that we each have the power and the responsibility to spot biases in our thinking and, in turn, to control the inappropriate behaviors that the biased attitude creates.

The practical bias-reduction strategies in this course have grown out of Dr. Sondra Thiederman’s 25 years of experience in the workplace diversity field. The material is based on her book Making Diversity Work: Seven Steps for Defeating Bias in the Workplace.

Course Package includes:

  • DVD:
