Five (5) Points for Progress Toolkit- Know Yourself Unconscious Bias Tool

A free toolkit titled ‘5-Points for Progress’ is available to promote employee engagement and give employers some practical tools and advice on how to be compliant with the Equality Act 2010. It contains the key steps employers should take to recruit the best talent for their organisation, how to reduce employee turnover and reduce related costs. To help employers get started with good practice on race and other equality strands, the toolkit includes the 'Know Yourself Toolkit. This enables both employers/employees to consider how their decisions impact on their diverse workforce and customer base. Designed as an interesting tool to highlight unconcious bias at its most fundamental level. There are no right or wrong answers, the toolkit is designed as a basic tool to ask if we really know ourselves.


The toolkit is created by the independent Ethnic Minority Advisory Group (EMAG).  EMAG provides advice to government, in collaboration and partnership with Race for Opportunity, supported by DWP, EHRC, UNITE the Union and Jobcentre Plus.

This assessment is part of the 5 Points for Progress Toolkit.
