Implicit biases are subconscious beliefs (including attitudes and stereotypes) that affect people’s understanding, actions and decisions. Implicit biases may be positive or negative. This course takes a look at the way that our implicit biases impact the way we interact with each other and how biases have caused good people to justify or perpetuate injustices in our legal system and in society. It also provides tools for interrupting bias in ourselves and others, and in our legal workplaces.
This course, presented by attorney Mirna Santiago, is practical, innovative and demonstrative, which makes it effective for either the Diversity and Inclusion novice or expert.
MIRNA MARTINEZ SANTIAGO is Deputy Counsel at one of the largest Latino not-for-profit organizations in the United States. Mirna has over 20 years of legal experience, handling a range of matters from torts to professional liability to insurance coverage to regulatory affairs.
An excellent program
Ms. Santiago was awesome. Best, most inspiring CLE I've attended for years. Loved it.
Excellent presentation on eliminating bias. Good examples, good strategies for overcoming and eliminating biases. Presenttor was excellent.
Wow! This was the most transparent, blatant, thought-provoking and honest training on diversity I have ever heard. This specific course and facilitator should be mandatory for everyone in the legal profession!
Nicely done. There is a line from Joni Mitchell's Amelia that I like: "People will tell you where they've been, They'll tell you where to go: But, until you get there yourself, You'll never really know." Ms. Santiago has a good way of challenging people's thinking without getting one's defenses up.
Wonderful, powerful presenter
I could listen to this speaker talk about painting dry. she was amazing!
Spectacular presentation! Ms. Martinez Santiago deftly addressed this minefield of a topic with grace, confidence, and perhaps most importantly, humility. I only wish everyone had the ability to hear what she has to say.
Awesome CLE. Disappointed at the number of attendees
Phenomenal speaker and topic. You should offer more along these issues.
Very well done.
