This MCLE webinar Nipping Bias in the Bud: Handling Microaggressions Before They Go Macro by speaker Angelica Sciencio, Esq., was previously scheduled for Thursday, January 14th.

About the Event

There has been a lot of research on cognitive bias. It affects how we perceive the world and how the world perceives us. This program will discuss different types of cognitive biases and their potential negative impact on your professional career and the lives of others. It will also provide tools to help you:

  • Identify, understand, and interrupt biases in the workplace and beyond.
  • Avoid engaging in potentially problematic behavior and using outdated terminology.
  • Learn and recover from your own faux pas.
