Exploring Unconscious Bias, Raising Awareness and Cultural Sensitivity – OBA’s Foundations in Adjudicative Tribunal Competencies: Certificate Program
Megan Mah, Senior Associate in WeirFoulds’ Employment Law Group, will be Chairing the Ontario Bar Association’s panel “Exploring Unconscious Bias, Raising Awareness and Cultural Sensitivity” on Wednesday, August 18, 2021 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
This program is the fifth in a series of eight programs that make up the Foundations in Adjudicative Tribunal Competencies: Certificate Program.
Everyone carries their own unconscious bias in their day to day lives. Successful adjudicators must be aware of and responsive to their own unconscious bias to ensure decisions are based on fact not fiction. Join our panel of experts as they discuss the role of unconscious bias in our lives, how to become more aware of it and how to be more sensitive to those from different cultures and backgrounds then your own.
