Course Details:

Are you curious to learn more about implicit bias and how it may impact your role as Lawyers or mediators? This workshop will involve interactive presentations and exercises to raise awareness about our biases – essentially, a form of mental shortcut that we all engage in – as well as discussion of stereotypes each of us has encountered in the way we are viewed by others.

In addition to awareness raising exercises, the facilitator will share strategies to address implicit bias and provide opportunities for participants to apply these ideas in mediation and practice scenarios.
