Event Description

Implicit bias can hinder or sidetrack success in mediation and arbitration.  The best practitioners and ADR neutrals know the value of increasing their awareness and sensitivity to recognize implicit bias and navigate its potential deleterious effects to achieve successful outcomes.  

The Western Washington Bankruptcy Court’s Thomas T. Glover Mediation Program is pleased to host a seminar to aid lawyers and ADR neutrals in improving their understanding and management of implicit bias in mediation and arbitration. The program will feature a panel discussion among the following distinguished jurists experienced in mediation and arbitration: U.S. District Court Chief Magistrate Brian A. Tsuchida, U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Mary Jo Heston, trial lawyer Craig Sims, of counsel with Schroeter Goldmark Bender, and Kathleen Wareham, mediator/arbitrator.

This event is open to all attorneys and mediators/arbitrators. Please join us for an engaging presentation and discussion, followed by a social gathering.
