Description:
The way we relate to people often depends on how we perceive them. Unfortunately, our perceptions are rife with implicit biases that we have absorbed through socialization and media messages. This demonstrative and interactive program illustrates, through the use of exercises and dialogue, the ways that implicit biases invade our speech, thought processes and ultimate decision-making. This program interrupts biases by shedding light on them and providing practical guidance on creating more inclusive work spaces for lawyers and the legal community more broadly.

Speaker:
Mirna M. Santiago, Founder, Girls Rule the Law
