What is the Unconcious Bias Toolkit?
London is a global city with a diverse population. We believe that our digital industries should reflect this.
- Only 8.5% of senior leaders in technology are from a minority background (Inclusive Boards, Inclusive Tech, 2018)
- Almost two-thirds (65%) of boards in the top tech firms have no female directors. (Inclusive Boards, Inclusive Tech, 2018)
- 78% of students cannot name a famous female working in technology (PWC, Women in Tech, 2017)
- Only 16% of females have had a career in technology suggested to them, compared with 33% of males (PWC, Women in Tech, 2017)
One of the causes of this representation gap is unconscious bias.
The TechPathways London unconscious bias toolkit provides educators with a framework to identify, challenge and mitigate bias within their settings.
For access to the full toolkit, and to make the most of its resources and ideas, take our course: Using the Unconscious Bias Toolkit.
