The RCVS Academy has launched a new course to help veterinary professionals recognise and challenge unconscious bias.

The course was developed with RCVS Leadership and Inclusion Manager, Gurpreet Gill (pictured), and aims to increase self-awareness of unconscious bias, explore strategies to reduce it, and promote equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace.

Gurpreet said: “Unconscious bias is an area that some within the professions may not be familiar with and so this course provides an overview of unconscious bias and its impact in the workplace.

“We also explore strategies that we can all apply to help reduce unconscious bias.

"This is important in helping to achieve fairer and more equitable working environments, and I’d encourage any veterinary professional, whatever your role, to undertake the course.”

The course is accessible free via the RCVS Academy, and takes about an hour and three quarters to complete,
