Illumination of Bias: Understanding and Reducing the Impact of Implicit Bias in the Legal Workplace

Entertaining, unique and practical seminar featuring original short films by ReelTime CLE to satisfy your elimination of bias credit requirement!

Originally presented:  December 11, 2018     |     Course length:  2.0 hours

One of the most significant, yet perhaps neglected, aspects of practicing law is the challenge of sustained interaction between people who are different than us in various ways – such as race, socioeconomic status, religion, and sexual orientation. Even the simplest of encounters can often leave lawyers, paralegals or the clients themselves feeling confused, frustrated, offended, or seriously hurt – even when everyone involved began with the best of intentions.

This program tackles the tricky subject of “implicit bias” (or “unconscious bias”) in the legal workplace. Poignant film vignettes will help to shine a light on the harm of implicit bias, both for individuals and the organizations in which they serve. We will also discuss practical strategies for identifying and mitigating the effects of implicit biases, and ultimately creating a genuinely inclusive and more profitable enterprise.

Attendees will learn how to:

    1. Identify implicit biases and understand how they operate, as well as the settings and circumstances in which they are more likely to show up.
    2. Understand the potential risks and harms of unchecked implicit biases – both to individuals and the organization as a whole.
    3. Employ practical tools and strategies for confronting instances of implicit bias and systemic injustices or inequities within the organization, as well as for how to handle the awkward situations when one is being confronted.
    4. Take practical steps towards creating a more genuinely inclusive work environment that respects the dignity and value of all persons, no matter their diverse viewpoints, beliefs, backgrounds, practices, or immutable characteristics.
