Have you or someone you know stood stunned as someone accused you of acting improperly, ascribing an intent you never entertained? It may be the result of Implicit Bias. 

Implicit Bias is natural, found in every one and unconscious. They are brain short cuts that develop over our lifetime to help us navigate our environment in a way that allows us to survive. When left untamed, it can trigger behaviors that result in unintended discriminatory behaviors and practices.  

This CLE course explores implicit bias with the following objectives:

  • Explore the impact of unconscious/implicit bias from benign to inappropriate biases, stereotypes that breed biases and how implicit biases create barriers to inclusion. 
  • Explore the attorney's duty to recognize and manage implicit bias 
  • Eight tactics to combat unconscious/implicit bias.
