(1.0  Diversity & Inclusion Professional Responsibility) 
Presented in both “TED-Talk” and panel formats, learn from multiple perspectives (advocate, psychologist, mediator and arbitrator) how litigant anxiety and our own implicit (subconscious) biases can affect mediation and arbitration outcomes.

Mediators and arbitrators bear the responsibility of facilitating and adjudicating the rights and obligations of litigants and must understand their own implicit biases in order to prevent these internal influences from negatively impacting objectivity and neutrality. Learn tips and strategies for recognizing and overcoming your implicit biases.
