Bias?  Me?  Understanding, recognizing, and navigating Implicit Bias.

One author wrote, “As an attorney, I have been mistaken for a court reporter, an administrative assistant and an office manager on numerous occasions. What motivated people to believe I was not an attorney? Could it have been my age? My gender? My race? Perhaps a combination of all three? No matter the motivation, the outcome was the same – a misunderstanding of an individual.”

Thoughts and feelings are “Implicit” when we are unaware of them or mistaken about their nature. Implicit or unconscious bias seeps into our everyday interactions and can affect our ability to remain (or appear to remain) neutral.  What does implicit bias look like to our clients?  What are we saying or doing that gives them a sense that we aren’t as neutral as we profess to be?
