View a sample from a live program
In this surprisingly funny seminar, Sean Carter will illustrate how even hidden and seemingly benign biases prevent lawyers from effectively representing clients and creating diverse and inclusive workplaces. And while these biases are somewhat unavoidable, it is possible for lawyers to "fail better" in a continuing effort to eliminate bias in the legal profession.
In this presentation, the speaker will discuss how even hidden and seemingly benign biases based on race, gender, religion, disability and sexual orientation can affect even the most fair-minded person. Specifically, the speaker will discuss in detail how each of the foregoing biases impairs our efforts to administer justice fairly both inside and outside of formal legal settings.
This program is eligible for 1 hour of Skills in NY.
