Event Description:
Promoting Fairness in Dispute Resolution:  Addressing Implicit Bias, Identity Anxiety, and Stereotype Threat

Impartiality and objectivity are understood as the hallmarks of fairness in both traditional judicial proceedings and in the sphere of alternative dispute resolution.  Yet insights from the mind sciences make clear that social identities - race, ethnicity, gender, religion age - can result in obstacles to fairness.  This presentation will address those obstacles - implicit biases, identity anxieties, and stereotype threats - and share strategies to promote  fairness in alternative dispute resolution.
