MCLE: Interrupting Bias in the Law: A Conversation with Henry A. J. Ramos

December 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

$30 – $35

Program:

This discussion will focus on implicit bias and the promotion of bias-reducing strategies. Recognizing how attitudes and stereotypes impact our decisions and actions in an unconscious way — and learning how to overcome those unconscious biases (sometimes also referred to as implicit biases) — can help to increase diversity of representation and provide better service to our clients.

This MCLE will qualify for Elimination of Bias credit. 

 

Our speaker will be Henry A. J. Ramos, Principal of Mauer Kunst Consulting.
