Join a discussion on the impact and implications of bad behavior and bias toward women in civil legal aid and public defense. Our engaging panel will discuss examples of efforts to address bias and behavior both within our workplaces and by external actors, including the private bar and judiciary. We will provide a framework and dialogue for moving forward both practically and culturally as well as tools for having difficult conversations, gaining buy-in from stakeholders, and changing policies and practices. Attendees will discuss next steps in empowering women and making change in our community.
