Despite our best intentions, research shows we all have it – unconscious, unintentional bias. Unconscious attitudes and beliefs are shaped by all kinds of influences – some of which we would not agree with or accept on a conscious level. Yet, these unconscious thoughts influence decision-making and can have a profound impact in the workplace as well as lawyers’ work product and relationships with clients, judges, juries and witnesses. The key is to learn how to recognize your own unconscious biases, as well as practical ways to interrupt them.

In this interactive session presented by Armstrong Teasdale Partner and Inclusion Committee Co-chair Meshach Rhoades and diversity and inclusion consultant, author and lawyer Kathleen Nalty, attendees will engage in a competitive game and visualization exercise, as well as create their own personal action plans to interrupt unconscious bias.
