Elimination of Bias CA CLE Before End of January 2021!

Elimination of Bias CLE Course on January 26, 2021 at 5:30 PM in a Zoom Room.

Have you or someone you know stood stunned as someone accused you of acting improperly, ascribing an intent you never entertained? It may be the result of Implicit Bias.

Implicit Bias is natural, found in everyone, and unconscious. They are brain shortcuts that develop over our lifetime to help us navigate our environment in a way that allows us to survive. When left untamed, it can trigger behaviors that result in unintended discriminatory behaviors and practices. When someone says they "didn't mean" the results and "can't help" themselves, they are not far from the truth. But these responses are no longer acceptable. What can you do?

This CLE course explores implicit bias with the following objectives:

  • Explore the impact of unconscious/implicit bias from benign to inappropriate biases, stereotypes that breed biases, and how implicit biases create barriers to inclusion.

  • Explore the attorney’s duty to recognize and manage implicit bias

  • Leave you with eight tactics to combat unconscious/implicit bias.

California MCLE Certificates will be provided by Francine Tone, an approved provider #18410, who certifies this activity has been approved for 1 Hour of continuing education by the State Bar of California in the subfield: Elimination of Bias. [And you know, Fran always makes CLE and ethics fun and interesting!]

In 2019, the California Legislature passed a law adding "Implicit Bias" as a CLE requirement. The State Bar is still looking at how to add this new requirement into your CLE requirements. Get ahead of the game and sign up for this course now.
