About the Keynote

The keynote will review the insidious nature of unconscious bias, explore the ways that our lack of recognition of it and of bullt-in racial hierarchies tend to undermine goals of an inclusive, caring and just society and collaborative professions. It will be geared towards professionals working in dispute resolution, but the themes can be globally applied.
