What is the Unconcious Bias Toolkit?
If you would like to learn more about Unconscious Bias in tech (and meet the toolkit author Rowan Roberts), come along to our TeachMeet on Thursday 5th March.
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.
