New York CLE Credit: 2.0 Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias

Newly admitted New York attorneys (attorneys admitted to the New York State Bar for two years or less) cannot earn CLE credit in the category of Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias.

Description:
Unconscious bias is the biggest challenge to advancing diversity in the legal profession. While training on unconscious bias is an essential first step, it is not enough to interrupt or eliminate the hidden barriers that can affect any attorney, but disproportionately impact diverse lawyers, which in turn causes higher attrition rates. Cutting-edge efforts by legal organizations involve embedding bias-interrupters into processes and procedures. Participate in this session to learn how to nudge any process in your organization to make it more bias proof. You will also learn how legal organizations are implementing inclusion nudges to make diversity sustainable and how to overcome potential hurdles you could face in implementing inclusion nudges in your organization.
