“Unconscious Biases in the Workplace”

Hear Song Richardson, Interim Dean of UCI School of Law, speak of unconscious biases in the workplace.  They are the snap judgments people make about others based on race, gender or language.  It affects decisions people make in daily life and can lead them to act in biased ways, even though they are not consciously prejudiced or racist.  Dean Richardson believes society’s challenge is to determine how we may put structures in place to safeguard against it.  “What excites me about my scholarship is that it’s not just thinking about these issues at a high level, ivory tower, theoretical way, but it’s also given me the opportunity to do things within the community that can make a real difference.”

A graduate of Harvard University and Yale Law School, a faculty member and Interim Dean at the UCI School of Law, Song Richardson is one of the nation’s leading experts on the complex and politically charged issue of racial bias and the criminal justice system.
