Waking the Sleeping Giants: Strategies for Managing Unconscious Bias
This roundtable discussion will focus on the impact that unconscious bias has on the administration of justice and the legal workplace, how actions, fact-finding, allocation of resources, and decision-making are affected by perceptions, assumptions, biases, values and stereotypes, and how conscious and unconscious actions affect co-workers and clients. Participants will learn modules to identify, share, and elicit in a non-threatening environment diversity of experiences. Further, participants will deepen their understanding of the mental models/frames of reference (which are reinforced by selective perception) that cause prejudice. Participants also will develop communication skills to minimize the effects of frames of reference on prejudice.
