April 11, 2013 | 2:30 – 4:00 pm + Q&A

The Four Seasons |  Austin, TXMahzarin Banaji headshot

Professor Mahzarin R. Banaji, the foremost leader on the science behind unconscious thinking and feeling as they unfold in social context, will lead a sophisticated discussion on the research behind her new book, Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People.

Using the revolutionary test she has co-developed (the Implicit Association Test), Professor Banaji will demonstrate how subtle biases influence how we perceive our clients and witnesses, interact with other attorneys and judges and attempt to persuade juries. On a day-to-day basis, they even affect how we make decisions on hiring, work distribution, evaluations, promotions, and layoffs.

Participants can look forward to an unforgettable examination of their own minds that will shape their interactions with others for years to come.
