Exploring unconscious bias

One way to further constructive dialogue on inclusion is by raising awareness of unconscious bias. All people harbor unconscious biases as a result of life experiences, culture, background, and exposure. Biases influence decision making and can affect perceptions and behavior towards others.

Our program to address unconscious bias kicked off in 2015, with face-to-face training for business leaders. The aim of the training is to raise awareness about diversity and inclusion; initiating a culture of constructive dialogue around diversity and inclusion, learn about unconscious bias and its impact on decision-making, and help leaders create concrete action plans for their teams. In 2016, we introduced our unconscious bias e-learning for our employee population. As of 2016, ~65% of the Ericsson leaders have taken the workshop and ~50% of our employees have completed the e-learning.

Managing Diversity

Our courses equip our leaders with the skills to manage diverse teams and help them foster an inclusive work environment where they can motivate and engage our employees.

Professional Development

We advocate and support proactive career planning for our employees to empower them to take control of their career and progress in a direction – and at a pace – that suits them. This can involve classroom learning, on-the-job training, mentoring and ad hoc Learning & Development initiatives.
