The Neuroscience of Implicit Bias: Part 2

The Neuroscience of Implicit Bias: Part 2

Registration is required. Sign up below to receive your Zoom invitation. 

Advancements in neuroscience show that our implicit biases impact our decision making and problem-solving skills. The way people look, speak, or even the sound of their names can affect how our brains react when meeting people. Neuroscience can help us better understand and change our preconceived notions of others to foster a more equitable society.

Join us for a two-part workshop with nationally renowned speaker Kimberly Papillon. In the sessions she will help us understand the neuroscience of implicit bias. She will provide concrete strategies and tools you can implement to thwart the unconscious biases in our decision making and interactions with others.

NOTE: Part 1 is a pre-requisite to Part 2. We strongly encourage you to attend both sessions.

Kimberly Papillon is a nationally recognized expert on the subject of decision-making in law, education, business and medicine. She has served as a member of the faculty at the National Judicial College since 2005. She has delivered over 400 lectures nationally and internationally on the implications of neuroscience, psychology and implicit association in the analysis of decision-making. She has lectured to medical students and medical school faculty, as well as physicians nationwide and in Australia on the neuroscience of decision-making in differential diagnosis and treatment. She has lectured to corporations including to Google, Walmart, Clorox and Kaiser Hospitals nationwide and provided a TedTalk.

She has provided presentations to the judges of the High Court of New Zealand, the Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia, the Caribbean Association of Judicial Officers, the Canadian Judiciary, the U.S. National Council of Chief Judges of the State Courts of Appeal, the United States Courts for the Ninth Circuit and the Tenth Circuit, and numerous other federal courts.  She has delivered lectures to the Securities and Exchange Commission, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), the United States Department of Justice, the United States Department of Education, and to judges in over 20 states including New York, Utah, California, Texas, Idaho, Illinois, Louisiana, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Indiana, Tennessee, Nebraska, Arizona, and Alaska.
