From Awareness to Action: How to address unconscious bias
Defeating Unconscious Bias has been designed to give you the tools to address unconscious bias – a problem affecting hiring, promoting, team building and all aspects of the workplace. With this 14-minute video, Leader’s Guide and Powerpoint presentation, you’ll have the materials and support you need to create a training initiative and conduct a workshop. Defeating Unconscious Bias will give your people the awareness to identify their own bias and outline clear action steps to counter it.
“You can’t change what you don’t know and you will not act on what you don’t acknowledge. Defeating Unconscious Bias is a powerful learning resource that encourages honest, personal awareness by reinforcing inclusive behaviors that will ultimately benefit all.”
~ Poppie M. Parish Senior VP, D&I, Key Bank
What can you do about the bias that’s affecting your workplace?
We all have bias. The question is, do we recognize it and then do something about it?
Defeating Unconscious Bias builds on the training provided by Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts and Gateways to Inclusion by addressing one of the most important training issues facing the workplace today – unconscious bias.
“In this video training program, we’ve created a tool that trainers, facilitators and managers can use to help people understand the impact of bias and take concrete steps to counter their own bias,” says Joel Lesko, SunShower’s producer. “Defeating Unconscious Bias comes out of my passion to help people create the ground for an inclusive, respectful workplace.” Call Joel now: +1-888-723-8517
The video shows three realistic vignettes that illustrate the impact of bias on people in the workplace. In the next section, the video teaches five practical and ready-to-implement tools people can use to become aware of and counter their own personal bias.

We have just released the Defeating Unconscious Bias elearning course. Fully interactive, the self-paced elearning course draws on the 14-minute video and adds exercises and knowledge checks. It is SCORM-compliant and ready to be installed in your Learning Management System. Give us a call for more information and to preview.
Effective Training Requires Emotional Impact
At SunShower Learning, we give you tools that can help you in your efforts to create a more respectful workplace. Our training programs can be used as part of a larger initiative or as specific training to address issues of stereotypes and unconscious bias. The programs are adaptable, powerful and validated by years of use in real training rooms around the world. Working with expert authors and speakers like Leslie Aguilar, Dr. Sondra Thiederman, Brian McNaught and Dr. Steve Robbins, SunShower has assembled a series of diversity programs that simply put, work. Our passion is helping people speak up and find concrete actions to improve themselves and their workplace.
From “doing the right thing” to finding the business advantage, the diversity world has shifted. SunShower has been on the cutting edge of this shift by not only describing the problem, but giving viewers the feeling of how these difficult situations impact people. The programs show the pain on all sides of the situation. Then, most importantly, our programs offer practical, easy-to-implement (sometimes hard to do) solutions that make a difference. Did we mention that each of our programs have won awards? Our newest, Defeating Unconscious Bias, has just been awarded a Telly Award.
