Psychology of Diversity and Unconscious Bias


Openness to confronting prejudice and discrimination in yourself and others.


Many people understand that diversity and unconscious bias are important issues to grapple with, but it’s difficult to get a strong handle on them. For years, social scientists have turned their attention to stereotyping and discrimination in order to use data and scientific methods to know more about why it happens and how to stop it.
What You’ll Learn

In this course we consider big ideas in diversity science with a focus on understanding concrete strategies to halt bias in its tracks. To know how to solve a problem, though, it’s necessary to understand the root of the problem. This course thus considers several major issues in diversity and unconscious bias, including:

The difference between stereotypes, prejudice, and discriminationHow stereotypes affect judgments of others and our own performanceHow prejudice stems from simple group mentalitiesHow to best approach diversityHow to reduce the effects of conscious and unconscious bias
Through comprehensive videos, slide presentations, exercises, and quizzes, you will learn about the fascinating science of prejudice and discrimination. This course is modeled on university curricula and workplace training that you could spend thousands of dollars on.
