This webinar is organised by Hong Kong Mediation Council Limited ("HKMCL")- a wholly-owned-subsidiary of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre incorporated in October 2022.

HKMCL x International Mediator Series

To commemorate its establishment, HKMCL has lined up a series of webinars by international mediators through 2023, bringing in experts from around the world to discuss the power of mediation in a wide spectrum -- early use, creative applications, and various mediation techniques in construction, finance, personal injury, family disputes, and employment etc.

HKMCL International Mediator Series Part 2: Harvard Law School Lecturers Explain Implicit Bias in Mediation and the Strategies to Manage Them

Are you curious to learn more about implicit bias, but perhaps reluctant to raise the topic with friends or colleagues? Could your workplace or community benefit from heightened awareness of the ways implicit bias affects our relationships and decision-making? Harvard Law School Lecturers David and Audrey will help participants have a deeper understanding of the implicit biases we all carry and specific strategies to manage them. They will discuss where biases come from – essentially, a form of mental shortcut that we all engage in – as well as discussion of stereotypes each of us has encountered in the way we are viewed by others, as well as strategies for counteracting bias.

In addition, David and Audrey will discuss David's new monumental survey (to be published at Harvard Negotiation Law Review) where he studied more than 1,000 social psychology literature regarding such techniques and identifies seven main categories of promising interventions: awareness, motivation, individuation, perspective-taking, contact, stereotype replacement, and mindfulness.

The webinar will be held in English via Zoom.
