This one and a half hour elimination of bias course will focus on raising awareness of implicit bias.  It will begin with the facts underpinning its existence, how to identify implicit bias, and the effect of implicit bias on institutions.  The framework for the discussion about systemic institutional bias is the criminal system.  We will encourage open and honest discussion about the topic to promote greater understanding and help effect positive change.  We will be joined by prominent community leaders, Andre Chapman, Executive Director of Unity Care Group, Inc. and Chief of Police Edgardo Garcia (City of San Jose), along with our esteemed attorney colleagues in the criminal justice system, Amir Alem, Esq., Deputy District Attorney (Santa Clara County) and Kipp Davis, Esq, Deputy Public Defender (Santa Clara County).  

Do you carry unconscious biases? Enhance your experience and spur lively discussion at this important seminar by gaining some personal insight through short online quizzes. Project Implicit by Harvard University is designed to test bias in various topics including race, gender, sexual orientation, and more.  

This panel discussion is being organized by S. Michael Lee, Deputy District Attorney, Santa Clara County.
