- the common hidden barriers, caused by unconscious bias, that are fueling higher attrition rates for attorneys in underrepresented groups;
- specific ways legal organizations are implementing bias-busters to eliminate hidden barriers;
- concrete tactics individual lawyers can implement to navigate the hidden barriers and unconscious bias more successfully;
- and the impact mindfulness has on fostering an inclusive and open workplace.
