Implicit biases are universal and can encompass both favorable and unfavorable assessments and outcomes. These biases are unconscious attitudes, learned from an early age, that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in everything we do. If left unchecked or unrecognized, implicit biases in the workplace can hinder diversity, recruitment, promotion, and retention and can detrimentally impact an organization’s culture. With the recent increased national focus on societal racial inequality, it is more important than ever to achieve an understanding of how our implicit biases affect our decision-making processes in the workplace.

In this webinar Shaka Johnson, VP and Associate General Counsel at Sony Electronics, and Justine Phillips, a Partner in Sheppard Mullin’s cyber and employment law practice groups, discuss how implicit biases, and efforts to promote diversity, impacts attorneys serving both in an in-house counsel role, and as outside counsel working with in-house counsel. Both speakers bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to bear on this sensitive and timely topic.
