Building An Inclusive Workplace

Bias can only be tackled by conscious action — there is just no other way around it. When everyone within an organisation actively works towards becoming aware of their bias, they are helping create a culture based around acceptance and inclusion. 

To help you and your team navigate the often circuitous path towards overcoming bias in the workplace, Kaleidoskope has prepared a new video series, so watch now and read on!  

Companies that embrace diversity and inclusion are more likely to attract and retain top talent, increase innovation, and achieve better business outcomes. Moreover, organisations with a diverse and inclusive culture have been shown to have higher financial returns and perform better in the stock market — so how can you achieve this?

Acknowledging the all-too-human failing that is bias allows individuals and organisations to acknowledge the reality of the situation and take proactive steps to address it. Even well-intentioned people can have implicit biases that affect their judgments and decision-making processes. 

Bias is an inclination or preference that influences judgement from being balanced or even-handed. Biases can be classified into two types: conscious bias and unconscious — pre-formed opinions based on stereotypes, past experiences, or gut instincts. Also known as implicit bias, unconscious bias can be challenging to identify and counter. 

Unconscious biases are subtle mental processes that often go unnoticed yet can have outwardly significant effects on our daily lives. 

In our new video series, we discuss the 5 Steps To Minimise Bias:

STEP 1: Accept that we are all biased

STEP 2: Consciously achieve inclusion

STEP 3: Instruct yourself to be fair

STEP 4: Create the right conditions

STEP 5: Take personal responsibility

We believe that bias can only be tackled by conscious action, and awareness is key for tackling these preconceived notions. By consciously acknowledging and recognizing biases to form more impartial decisions, we can start creating an environment that fosters acceptance and inclusion. 

When everyone within an organisation actively works towards becoming aware of their bias, they are helping create a culture based around acceptance and inclusion rather than judgemental practices. It is the first step in promoting a workplace free of bias, discrimination, or any other form of hostility. 

Accepting that biases exist and acknowledging that everyone has them can help to reduce their impact. By acknowledging and understanding their own biases, individuals can actively work to mitigate them and make more objective decisions. 

To achieve this goal, organisations must think about investing time into training programs designed with long-term strategies for creating an equitable space within the company. 

With our many years of combined industry expertise in the field of learning and development, Kaleidoskope can help you and your organisation attain this goal through pragmatic, holistic programs.
