This program offers 1 participatory MCLE credit; 1 Elimination of Bias. You must register in advance to participate.
CLA Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiative presents a 2-part series to dive into tactics that address implicit bias. This webinar is part 1 of the 2-part series.
Although there has been a lot of dialogue on implicit and unconscious bias, unpacking this concept to understand the myriad of “mental shortcuts” that we take that impact how we work with and value others is critical to the diversity and inclusion journey of any organization.
This first session will cover many of the specific implicit biases that affect the ways in which we learn, work, lead, and how we can break our biases to achieve our highest potential as individuals and leaders within organizations. It will address how we can become more aware of our own assumptions, behaviors, and impact, especially when we are interacting with people who we (consciously and unconsciously) and offer tactical solutions in the screening, interviewing and effectively on boarding new lawyers. This webinar will be helpful to anyone who hires talent, or who is working with volunteers.
Although this is a 2-part workshop, you do not need to attend both sessions to benefit from the content.
