Everyone has biases. It’s natural. While me might recognize our own explicit biases, the unconscious nature of implicit bias makes them easier to ignore. Unfortunately, ignoring our implicit biases impacts not only our practice success, but our entire life and reputation.

When we are able to recognize our own biases, and those of others, we can be in control of changing systematic biases within our workplace and society, removing processes that support only one set of particular outcomes. This, in turn, ensures we are doing our part as lawyers to level the playing field.

This program will support you to learn:
  • How to identify and address implicit biases of any kind among yourself, your staff, colleagues, clients, and vendors regardless of the size of your firm/practice
  • Actionable, concrete strategies and tips to address and minimize these biases
  • How to turn these biases into a diversity model that will help you grow your practice and firm into a renowned leader in equalizing society.
  • How to bring this change in perspective to any institution
