June 15, 2021
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Join us for our 2nd session of AWL’s Allyship, Diversity and Inclusion Series
Outsmart Your Unconscious Biases
Kathleen Nalty, J.D. – June 15 12:00-1:30 pm VIA ZOOM
HOST : OSLER, HOSKIN & HARCOURT LLP
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 can influence decision-making and can have a profound impact in decision-making for clients, in talent management processes in the workplace, and with respect to interactions with other external stakeholders such as witnesses, opposing counsel, litigants, judges, and community members.
Attend this engaging and interactive session to learn more about how to recognize your own unconscious biases as well as practical ways to interrupt them.
We are pleased to welcome Kathleen Nalty, J.D. to speak to our members. Kathleen is a lawyer, author, and expert in diversity, equity and inclusion. She has received multiple awards for her thought leadership and advocacy for DEI. She is an expert in strategies for creating cultures of inclusion to retain and advance diverse talent.
