Serving with Excellence in Legal Aid: Understanding Implicit Bias

Fellows

This seminar will address how we can become more aware of our own assumptions, behaviors and impact, especially when we are interacting with people whom we (consciously and unconsciously) see as different from us. Unpacking the concept of implicit and unconscious bias to understand the “mental shortcuts” that we take that impact how we work with and value others is critical to serving legal aid clients with excellence.

Speaker:

  • Dr. Arin N. Reeves, President, Nextions LLC
