Implicit and Unconscious Bias Training for GLAM professionals

CW: Reference to historical discrimination against Women, BAME, LBTQIA+, and Disabled Peoples.

Although BAME, LGBTQIA+ Disabled communities and Women are now legally protected, much of the historical discrimination has social implications that carry on to this day, which in turn become implicit / unconscious bias. In this course you will learn about these historical events, how they impact our biases, how these biases continue to spread, and the ways in which we can challenge these biases.

This unconscious bias training will take you through the three main biases, Perception bias, Affinity Bias and Confirmation Bias.

The course includes video lectures, one pop quiz and reflective assessments.
