Abstract

Training can raise people’s awareness of their unconscious biases, but evidence shows that training alone is not effective in changing behaviour. The UK government has already decided to discontinue this kind of programme in its various departments. Frederick Herbert writes that while it is generally accepted that awareness is not a sufficient condition for behavioural change, it is usually necessary. He argues that unconscious bias training can be re-thought of as a foundation upon which other interventions can build.
