Roundtable 4
Bias Interrupters in Law

Our roundtable leaders will lead a conversation around how each of us can become bias interrupters in our legal community and share examples of how they became bias interrupters by making small tweaks to basic business systems (hiring, performance evaluations, assignments, promotions and compensation) that interrupt and correct explicit and implicit bias in the workplace.  Instead of approaching diversity initiatives as large-scale culture changes, bias interrupters identify and change the constant flow of bias in basic business systems.  The concepts and actions are applicable to in house legal departments, government legal departments as well as small and large private practices.  Bias interrupters work because they change systems, instead of just focusing on people.
