Be a Gender Bias Detective

Be a Gender Bias Detective Online Board Game

About this game

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. One of the areas that cognitive biases impact deeply is gender diversity in the workplace.

Be a Gender Bias Detective, is a highly engaging and intense online board game where learners take on the role of a bias detective and hunt down the five cognitive biases that impact gender diversity. You can deploy this game on your LMS as a SCORM package or you can deploy it through the Skills Cafe’ cloud LMS.

The five cognitive biases

The list of cognitive biases run into hundreds. However, through careful research and study, our team has identified four biases that are most critical to be managed to create an environment where gender diversity can flourish. These biases are:

  1. Stereotypes: Descriptive and Prescriptive
  2. Affinity bias
  3. Gender biased language
  4. Confirmation bias

Intense, engaging, and gamified

This is not a traditional, click and learn, eLearning, but, an intense and experiential online learning experience. The focus is on understanding biases and the impact they have on workplace decision making through scenarios, realistic situations, and case challenges.

Boardgame experience

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.

Who is this game for?

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.
