We use simplifications, categorizations and stereotypes to process the countless,
complex pieces of information that constantly stream at us. These help us to
organize the world and are very efficient. However, this process can also give rise to
cognitive distortions, so-called unconscious biases, which influence our actions and decisions unconsciously. Unconscious thought patterns and attributions can lead us, for example, to overestimate or underestimate the skills of others, unconsciously favouring certain people and disadvantaging others. In this interactive training participants will learn more about how unconscious biases arise and how they work, and will get to know examples and initial approaches of what they can do to counteract them in order to deal with different people in an appreciative and constructive way in their day-to-day work.


  • Development and impact of unconscious biases
  • Raising awareness of unconscious attribution and discrimination processes
  • Strategies for action: What can I do about unconscious biases?
