Title: Implicit Biases, Equity, and Justice. How the Eugene legal community can support equal access and opportunity regardless of race, gender, age, or ability.

Where: Eugene Federal Courthouse (405 E. 8th Avenue) in the Jury Assembly Room
When: Friday, March 1, 2019 @ 12pm

Description: We are pleased to welcome Dr. Yvette Alex-Assensoh, Professor of Political Science and Vice President for Equity and Inclusion at the University of Oregon, and Dr. Erik Girvan, Associate Professor and CRES Faculty Co-Director at the University of Oregon School of Law, for a timely conversation on hidden biases in our daily lives, and diversity, equity, and inclusion issues on campus and in the broader Eugene community. This conversation will provide research-based tools, strategies, and insights directly relevant to the practice of law, helping us all recognize and address roadblocks to inclusion and equal access that we may be perpetuating without realizing it.

Dr. Girvan will present on understanding and reconciling the hidden biases that inhabit our thinking and decision making. Can someone’s race, sex, age, and other characteristics influence the way we see and treat them even when we are genuinely trying to be unbiased? What concrete steps can we take to help prevent this from happening? Through a mix of short presentations, lively activities, and discussions, we will explore some harmful side effects of how our brains naturally perceive, categorize, and draw inferences about the world, including other people. We will examine when this kind of bias is most likely to occur. Learn practical steps we can all take to try to reduce or eliminate implicit bias from our decision-making. How you think, or how you think that you think, may surprise you.

Dr. Alex-Assensoh will present on equity and inclusion issues on campus, and the University of Oregon’s efforts to embed equity and inclusion in the day-to-day processes of university life in an effort to bring about a more diverse faculty, staff and student body. Dr. Alex-Assensoh–an attorney, author, professor, and university administrator–will share her extensive experience working in the field of equity and inclusion, and will offer practical ways ​that the Eugene legal community can participate in and support such efforts on campus, in our community, and in our representation of clients.

Please RSVP at eugenefba@gmail.com by Monday, February 25, 2019 so we know how much lunch to prepare. If you forget to RSVP, come anyway! Your CLE credit and lunch are FREE.
