Intersectionality and Unconscious Bias
What is it all about?
Intersectionality is a theory that aims to explain people’s life experiences based on the many intersecting characteristics of their identity. By understanding and applying intersectionality our working practice can become more equality based.
One of the difficulties of intersectional modern working practice is managing unconscious bias. In this course we explore and reflect on our unconscious biases and think practically about ways we can challenge them to help us promote equality and diversity, challenge discrimination and make our services inclusive. Learners will understand the concepts of intersectionality and unconscious bias and will be able to critically reflect on their working practice to promote an equal and diverse workplace.

- Be able to apply intersectionality to their working practice.
- Be able to describe unconscious bias and the different ways in which bias can occur.
