Tackling Unconscious Bias

Implicit (unconscious) bias happens when our brains make automatic judgments about people and situations without us realizing it. These biases are shaped by our backgrounds, cultures and experiences. We all hold these biases – they are a part of human nature – and they can have a profound influence over our decision-making in the workplace.

In 2015, 3,500 Ericsson managers will take part in unconscious bias workshops around the world. Web-based e-training is also offered to all employees, ensuring that we continue to strive every day to be a truly diverse and inclusive company.

To learn more about unconscious bias take the Implicit Association Test (IAT). The IAT measures the strength automatic associations made between mental representations of social groups, evaluations and stereotypes. The test is currently available at 39 country sites, in 25 languages. Demonstration tests are available at Harvard’s Project Implicit.

    Sounds like a great idea to me. It does not surprise me that this comes from a Swedish company. Sweden, Denmark, Norway all seem to be so ahead of the rest of the world in terms of new ideas for social progress! Great job!
