This e⁠-⁠training course deals with unconscious cognitive distortions and other unconscious thought patterns, such as prejudice and stereotypes, along with their causes. Participants will get to know various forms of unconscious bias – such as name bias, affinity bias and confirmation bias – and also receive some helpful tips on how to deal with them in a reflective way in their professional life.
