Law firms and corporate legal departments have made great progress in encouraging greater diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.  Our profession, however, still struggles with finding effective ways to overcome implicit bias, which negatively impacts attorneys of all backgrounds and seniority levels.  This program explores the challenge of implicit bias in the legal profession - what it is, how it surfaces, and its impact on the day-to-day practice of law.

Christina D. Hernandez, Senior Consultant with Vernā Myers Consulting Group, LLC, will present the latest legal thinking on implicit bias in the legal profession and will facilitate an interactive discussion of compelling real-live scenarios encountered by attorneys and other legal professionals.  Participants will learn how to identify and counter implicit biases within and outside of their organizations and how to develop best practices to move diversity and inclusion forward.
