Webinar: Understanding Bias
October 13 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
1.5 Hours MCLE, 1.5 Recognition and Elimination of Bias
Getting to grips with our bias is a critical step in creating a fair and inclusive workplace and community. No matter how open-minded we might like to think we are, we are all inherently biased. These biases develop over the course of our lives because of the influences of our friends and family, our personal experiences, our cultural background, and external influences such as the media. While we may be largely unaware of them, they can exert a powerful influence on how we interact with those around us and the decisions that we make about people and situations.
This Workshop will give a better understanding of:
– Why humans are biased
– The relationship between bias, prejudice, stereotype, microaggression and discrimination
– How unconscious bias can impact on the workplace, relationships, and our community
– What we can do to reduce or eliminate bias from our decision-making process
– How to identify and address bias in specific situations that relates to law
