Often difficult to spot, bias and assumptions can exist on both a personal and systemic level, and affect one's decision-making and advocacy. Whether you are an adjudicator or someone appearing before the tribunal system, learn how to check for these potential blindspots.

In this 60-minute online webinar, a panel of acknowledged experts will examine these concepts so you know how to deal with individual biases, assumptions, and stereotypes, as well as those that can exist within the tribunal system. Topics include:

  • Identifying systemic and institutional bias, and how these can be built into the adjudicative system
  • Analyzing examples of how stereotyping, bias, assumptions can come up in adjudication
  • Understanding how these concepts might affect those appearing before the tribunal system
  • Finding solutions for issues arising out of systemic biases

PLUS!  You will get unlimited access to the program archive for 90-days from the date of the program, and earn 1 hour of LSO EDI Professionalism Credits.
