Learning & Resources
The UC Managing Implicit Bias Series is a six-course online training series designed to increase awareness of implicit bias and reduce its impact in the workplace. The series reinforces our IDEA values that enable the Lab and UC to attract and retain a top talent workforce, and it further supports our commitment to developing effective leaders and managers of people.
Employees may complete individual courses, or the entire series. Those who complete all six online courses will receive the UC Systemwide Managing Implicit Bias Certificate. The series contains six self-paced, online interactive courses. Each course is 15-20 minutes in length.
The series is also a core requirement to the UC Systemwide People Management Series and Certificate. As a People Manager, it is especially important to be aware of implicit bias and how it impacts the way we work and interact with others.
