Implicit Bias: Fact or Fiction?
MCLE: 1.5 Hours in the Elimination of Bias in the Legal Profession

Register For Webcast

Topic
Implicit bias has catapulted into the spotlight in the last several months as organizations begin to be challenged by women who claim they have been denied opportunities and equal compensation because of the stereotypes and hidden biases of decision makers. Some experts say this explains why, even 50 years after the passage of Title VII, there is still a dearth of women in high level positions in companies and law firms. Others say the concept of implicit bias is illusory and that the absence of women in the higher echelons of corporate America is due to a pipeline issue or lack of ambition or choices women make about their careers. In this discussion with two prominent women in the employment bar, we will examine implicit bias and whether it helps explain the lack of women in positions of power and leadership in law firms and companies.



11:30 a.m. - 12:40 p.m.
