New Online Course for Members - Unconscious Bias Fundamentals for Legal Practitioners
We are pleased to offer our members access to this new interactive online course.
The course has been developed by the Law Council of Australia in consultation Symmetra. Symmetra is a leading diversity and inclusion consulting firm, and has been working with many of Australia’s top and mid-tier law firms providing unconscious bias and inclusion skills programs for over a decade.
“Many people believe this is simply a social justice issue”, Heather Price, CEO of Symmetra comments, “but combating unconscious bias is key to business success. Even small practices encounter situations like ethnic applicants, diverse clientele and the need to grow their networks every day. When you are unaware of the implicit associations you bring to the table you will not be as effective at managing a team, understanding your clients or building rapport as you could be.”
In the interactive online CPD course, practitioners will learn about the concept of unconscious bias, how it effects their business, and equip themselves with tools to increase their effectiveness in diverse situations; all in a fun and challenging game format. Videos, case studies and revealing questions engage the learner in this relevant and fast paced program.
The one-hour module costs $110 and can be utilised for 1 CPD unit in any of the three compulsory areas of ethics, practice management or business and professional skills
