Speaking Engagement

Morrison & Forester’s Carrie H. Cohen served as a panelist for the “Implicit Bias and Diversity in the Legal Profession: Exploring Best Practices for Lawyers and Judges” session. This panel introduced the topic of implicit bias (from scientific and pragmatic views) and offered considerations for recognizing and addressing biases that involve gender, race, sexual orientation, and age. These biases can create access and justice barriers or impact hiring, retention, promotion, and evaluation decisions. The panel also explored business advantages and other positive impacts of diversity in the legal profession.
