Unconscious Bias Training Modules
Online Unconscious Bias training modules, available via SuccessFactors: Learning, were created at University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) in an initiative led by Professor Maydianne Andrade, Department of Biological Sciences at UTSC. These modules were produced with input from University of Toronto faculty members who serve as part of the Toronto Initiative for Diversity & Excellence (TIDE) to increase capacity for education across the University in response to heavy demand.
