Diamond Law Training presents Continuing Legal Education on Implicit Bias, the unconscious beliefs that cause well-meaning people to perpetuate inequality. The Microaggressions & Race module features noted academics, judges, and lawyers of color who discuss their experiences with racism and visions for social change in the legal field. Participants will also view Barbara J. Diamond's film Reveal Moments, featuring four people of color who share the microaggressions they have encountered at work and in daily life.
In Oregon, this module is worth one Access to Justice credit.
