Cultural Competence: Recognizing Implicit Bias
Successful legal practice requires positive working relationships within an environment of cooperation and respect. Professionalism prompts productivity, which creates profit. This program seeks to enhance your ability to achieve and maintain a thriving, productive, inclusive workplace of equal opportunity through a lively discussion of how to detect and address implicit bias, increase diversity, and enhance cultural competence.
This program will focus on how to recognize implicit bias through some of the more common perceptible red flags flown by employees harboring biased views or discriminatory intent. By discussing what to look for, and where and when to look, this program will enhance the ability of managers and supervisors to spot problem employees sooner rather than later.
Focusing on education and inclusion will reduce workplace harassment, bullying, and discrimination, boost morale, and help employers avoid legal liability. Addressing issues of implicit bias will help employers to maintain a workplace that is both culturally diverse and culturally sensitive, to promote a sense of inclusion and comfort for all employees.
