There is a fun, engaging, and interactive new way to talk to colleagues and executives about gender bias at work. Presenting the Be a Gender Bias Detective online boardgame.
Be a Gender Bias Detective, is a highly engaging and intense online game where learners take on the role of a bias detective and hunt down the five cognitive biases that impact gender diversity at work.
You can deploy this game on your LMS as a SCORM package or you can deploy it through the Skills Cafe’ cloud LMS.
More than process or policy what promotes diversity at the workplace is the awareness of cognitive biases and their impact on everyday behaviour and decision making. Cognitive biases affect everyone, every day and in every sphere. They are not particularly good or evil, but at the workplace, they can have a profound impact on how executives and managers take decisions.

This is not a traditional, click and learn eLearning module, but, an intense and gamified online learning experience. The focus is on understanding biases and their impact on scenarios, realistic situations, and case challenges.
This game has three levels. Each level presents a series of challenges that require learners to identify the biases at play and take decisions to neutralize them. Learners have access to the bias flashcards that provide in-depth understanding about the four cognitive biases.
This online game is most suited for Managers and team leaders. However, the online game is useful to build awareness about gender bias across all levels in an organisation.
