ONLINE MEETING: A Virtual Discussion with Dr. Gunderson: Addressing Workplace Implicit/Unconscious Bias and Microaggressions through Anti-Racism Policies
This meeting is being hosted by the Employment Law Section, in partnership with Human Rights Law.

Speaker(s): Dr. Lisa Gunderson , One Love Consulting
Time: Wednesday, May 5, 2021, 12:30pm - 2:00pm (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.50 hours

In this part presentation, part Q&A session, Dr. Gunderson discusses the definition of implicit and unconscious bias in the workplace context and how workplace bullying & harassment policies may be falling short in addressing workplace racism. These policies tend to leave employers without any clear guidelines on how to handle complaints from employees subjected to microaggressions, or how to determine what remedies should be implemented. Dr. G will lay the roadmap as to what considerations should go into developing a workplace anti-racism policy as a tool to address implicit/unconscious bias and microaggressions
