  • Explore the psychological underpinning of implicit bias: what causes it to happen and how we can combat it?
  • Discuss various ways bias infiltrates the work of the judiciary, and factors that increase or decrease bias.
  • Discover new resources and tools to improve our practice of intercultural competency.
  • Describe the variety of ways we can provide implicit bias and cultural competence training.
