Overcoming the Impact of Implicit Bias on Judgment, Decision-Making, and Behavior in the Legal Profession

August 15, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Bryan Simpson U.S. Courthouse, Jury Assembly Room
300 N. Hogan Street
Jacksonville FL 32202

Please join us for a special lunch presentation by Dr. Kate Ratliff, an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Florida and the Executive Director of Project Implicit. Project Implicit is a non-profit organization and international collaborative network of researchers investigating implicit social cognition—thoughts and feelings that exist outside of conscious awareness or conscious control. Dr. Ratliff’s work provides scientific understanding of how implicit biases form and how they influence judgment and behavior. She also provides training for organizations seeking to reduce the consequences of implicit biases in their operations and has worked with clients such as World Bank.

This luncheon will be co-hosted by the Jacksonville Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, the D.W. Perkins Bar Association, and the Jacksonville Women Lawyers Association and will be free for members of the sponsoring organizations. 1.5 hours of CLE credit is pending.
