Unconscious Bias Training Matters. Here’s Why Grovo is Making Our Courses Free To All

Written by Steven Carpenter

At Grovo, we are passionate about improving workplace learning and employee development. Our mission is to equip every person with the proper tools they need to thrive in their jobs, enabling businesses to operate at their best.

Grovo has become a recognized industry leader in developing modern learning content – and we’re especially passionate about the power of our Diversity & Inclusion and Unconscious Bias content to help companies build more inclusive workplaces and communities. Some of the world’s most innovative companies, large and small, have used our Microlearning library to examine and respond to their own biases and promote inclusion with their customers, partners, employees and leaders.

Our Unconscious Bias content is effective because it speaks to learners as humans, rather than as employees. It breaks down the sensitive and highly conceptual topic in a manner that is easily understandable, non-accusatory, and unifying rather than divisive.

The single hardest step toward addressing unconscious bias is simply to acknowledge that it exists. To that end, Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson stands out for the swift and unequivocal decision to close over 8,000 U.S. stores on May 29 to conduct anti-bias training company-wide. As Johnson said, “Closing our stores for racial bias training is just one step in a journey that requires dedication from every level of our company.”

In-person training is a good first step in addressing the problem, but it can’t stop there. Addressing unconscious bias is a continual pursuit, and the goal of any good unconscious bias training should be to give people the knowledge and tools they need to identify and mitigate their biases themselves.  

We believe it’s important that employees at every company have the opportunity to learn and reflect on their own unconscious biases. It is valuable learning that affects individuals, teams, and the health of the company overall. And that’s why, starting today, we are making our best-in-class Unconscious Bias content of 20 Microlearning lessons free for everyone.

Whether you’re an individual contributor, a team manager, or a business leader looking to build a more inclusive workplace, we invite you to use Grovo’s Unconscious Bias workplace learning content for free.
