Implicit Bias for Lawyers MCLE Workshop

What is implicit bias? Why is it important to attorneys? How do these biases affect us? How do we reduce the biases we all hold?

Join Stanford Law School alumnae and Daylight Justice founders Shanti Brien, JD ’99, and Christy Chandler, JD ’99, for a training on Implicit Bias for Lawyers. This training is designed for attorneys to become educated on the concept of implicit bias, to recognize the importance of bias as it relates to their professional and personal lives and to reduce bias in order to make better decisions. The course uses video, music and interactive exercises for participants to discover their own biases and to create strategies for reducing bias.

This program is free of charge, but registration is required. Kindly register by January 20.

1.5 hours of Elimination of Bias MCLE credit will be offered for this program.
