Reduce Unconscious Bias

Reduce Unconscious Bias is an add-on module that provides techniques to evaluate and hire an increasingly diverse and global workforce as part of your recruitment strategy. As interviewers incorporate and apply inclusive interviewing they recognize their own cultural filters and unconscious biases, and learn to assess each candidate for their unique skills and talents. This optional 15 to 60-minute module can be added to reinforce an objective hiring process in Effective Interviewing!® or Advanced Effective Interviewing!®.
