ASI measures attitudes and beliefs that people may be unwilling or unable to report. Our Implicit Bias Audit and data analysis quantify hidden organization's biases, by demographics, position titles, and organizationlocations. We give you the insights needed to develop and implement targeted D&I training programs.
The first step in the process is to define the bias types that you wish to measure. There are numerous options available. Some of the more common bias types used are Age, Gender, Race, and Disability. You may choose any number of bias types and combinations for your organization assessment.
Once bias types are identified and confirmed, participants will be asked to respond to the ASI Implicit Bias questionnaire. The ASI questionnaire can be customized to meet each organization's unique needs. The questionnaire is about 40 questions in length and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Once the respondents have completed the ASI questionnaire data will be collected, aggregated, and cleaned. It is important to note that no time will data have any personal identification information associated with it. No identification information is obtained on the questionnaire.
Results from our data analysis will show bias types and levels based on the categorical data used in the questionnaire survey. The effect and interaction of multiple, categorical attributes will be used to identify the specific sources of bias.
Respondent survey analysis will provide insights that highlight bias tendencies and areas for training needs. These insights can then be used to develop specific plans and training programs as needed for specified groups.
There are many bias types that may be of interest to measure. The ASI audit can be customized to meet your specific needs. We will work with your team to understand your concerns and modify our questionnaire accordingly. A few of the more common bias types are listed above.
Unconscious biases are social stereotypes that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. Biases stem from one’s tendency to organize social worlds by categorizing. We measure where those unconscious biases come from in your organization.
Unconscious biases are social stereotypes about certain groups of people that individuals form outside their own conscious awareness. Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about various social and identity groups, and these biases stem from one’s tendency to organize social worlds by categorizing. Unconscious bias is often incompatible with one’s own conscious values.
Here is the good news! Unconscious biases are not permanent. In fact, they are very malleable and steps can be taken to limit their impact on our thoughts and behaviors. So often a good next step is to create and implement your own specific strategy and plan for overcomming bias in your organization.
Creating a safe and inclusive workplace starts by making all employees aware of what is bias and how to overcome it. Training provides the knowledge, skills, and tools that foster a more creative, inclusive, respectful, and productive workplace. Give your employees the support they need. Numerous sources of expertise and support are available. Contact us if you need recommendations.
After Diversity and Inclusion, training the respondents then retake the same ASI Implicit Bias Questionnaire.
ASI will then compare the pre and post-test results to identify areas of improvement and needs for more training.
The data will also be compared to national norms as provided by the ASI database.
