Product Description:

You have said something that has been perceived as bias. This could have happened anywhere, anytime – in court, with a client or a colleague. You’re tongue tied. You want to fix it, but you’re not sure what to say.

This session prepares you to recognize and recover from the use of biased language manifested as micro-aggressions and micro-insults. Hypotheticals are drawn from the context of the legal practice. Learn four basic strategies on how to recover using self and community acknowledgment, affirmations and openness to learning as recovery tools.

Presenter: K. Joy Williams - Diversity and Public Service Program Manager, Washington State Bar Association, Seattle
