Implicit bias is a universal phenomenon, not limited by race, gender, or even country of origin.
Nationally recognized expert Judge Mark W. Bennett, Northern District of Iowa, will focus on developing an understanding of what implicit bias is, where it comes from and how we develop our own implicit bias.
Included in his presentation:

  • The relationship between implicit bias and stereotypes;
  • How implicit bias affects decision making in the civil and criminal justice systems; and
  • Emerging strategies to reduce the effect of our implicit biases
