Actions of explicit bias and discrimination are usually easy to spot and often simple to address. Employee complaints stemming from supervisors' and co-workers' alleged implicit bias are more challenging to manage as the underlying actions are often unintentional and can arise from subconscious attitudes of the accused.
Nikki Nesbitt, Co-Managing Partner of Goodell DeVries, will present "Understanding Implicit Bias to Improve and Protect Your Workplace" at The Trial Network's fall program, "In-House and Outside Counsel: In Sync and In Person" (November 4-6). Nikki will highlight modern examples of workplace disputes arising from implicit bias and explain what can be done to manage complaints that arise from them. She will also share current company trends for training employees to acknowledge, prevent, and address their own biases.
