Racial Justice Series: Implicit Bias
November 3, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Implicit bias can and does affect decisions and outcomes almost everywhere in our personal and professional lives. And as we’ve seen time and time again, implicit bias can cause especially serious harm in the legal system. Yet by definition, bias that is implicit is hard to detect an even harder to fix.
Needless to say, implicit bias is an important problem to tackle for those who care about access to justice. We’ll explore the problem—and steps to address it—in the second installment of our Racial Justice Series.
Racial Justice Series: Implicit Bias takes place on Thursday, November 3rd from 6 to 8 pm at GW Law (2000 H Street NW). RSVP here or by clicking on the graphic below.
An expert panel will discuss the latest research on implicit bias, and share specific examples of how lawyers may encounter and respond to bias. We’ll hear from Stacy Brustin (Professor of Law at Catholic University, Columbus School of Law) and Carmia Caesar (Director, Experiential Learning, Howard University School of Law), as well as moderator Camille Holmes (former Director of Leadership and Racial Equity at the National Legal Aid & Defender Association). Light refreshments will be served.
