Inclusive Intelligence: Recognizing & Interrupting Implicit Bias in the Legal Industry
Track: Professional Development
This interactive presentation will cover the basic principles of unconscious bias and explore many of the specific implicit biases that affect the ways in which we learn, work, and lead as business-of-law professionals. In a rapidly changing global marketplace where differences can be a source of conflict or strength, understanding and negotiating our implicit cognitive biases can be an individual as well as an organizational competitive advantage. This presentation will identify various biases and barriers that impact the ways in which we work within the legal workplace and highlight tailored practices and effective strategies that can be utilized to negotiate and neutralize biases. The presentation will bring together substantive research and findings from many disciplines to focus on the ways this research impacts legal workplaces, especially as it relates to roles played by those in the P3 community.
