We are excited to hear our presenter, Destiny Peery, JD, PhD, speak about Understanding the Effects of Bias on Women in Law


Session Description: We can all point to instances of that subtle, sometimes ambiguous, biases that affect women throughout our lives - in the workplace, in the home, and in representations of women in society. This lunch talk will offer an opportunity to learn about the research on existence of implicit gender biases and the effects while also offering an opportunity for discussion about what to do in the face of it. The talk will focus on the distinction between stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination, explicit and implicit bias, and the ways in which implicit biases can both affect the way that we think about ourselves and others, but also the way that others see us as professional women.
