Racial & Ethnic Fairness in the Courts

The National Consortium on Racial and Ethnic Fairness in the Courts (National Consortium) is offering an Implicit Bias Training for court professionals via a webinar on December 15 at 1:00 p.m. This seminar explores emerging research in neuroscience and reveals how unconscious processes may affect decision-making. Brain imaging and decision-making studies can explain how we determine intelligence, veracity, threat, and competence. The goal – to identify ways to increase sound decision-making and fairness guided by science. Ms. Papillon, the presenter, is a nationally recognized expert on the subject of judicial and legal decision-making. She is a regular faculty member at the National Judicial College. Ms. Papillon has delivered over 100 lectures national and internationally on the implications of neuroscience, psychology and implicit association in the analysis of decision-making in the fields of business, medicine, education and the law.

One thought on “Racial & Ethnic Fairness in the Courts

  1. I think this is a great idea! I attended the Cultural Intelligence training in November and the issue of implicit racial bias in the court system was one of the topics we discussed, so this webinar is very timely.
