On Wednesday, April 13th, Justice Goodwin Liu, Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court, will deliver The Provost’s Lecture on Diversity and The Distinguished Owen J. Roberts Lecture in Constitutional Law: Implicit Bias, Structural Bias, and Implications for Law and Policy Diversity. In almost every organizational setting, today’s leaders are grappling with challenging issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. “Implicit bias” and “structural bias” have become familiar terms in everyday discussions about diversity, but the terms are not always well-defined. Drawing on recent work convened by the National Academy of Sciences, Justice Liu will discuss the evidentiary basis for implicit bias and structural bias, as well as possible legal responses and mitigation strategies applicable to a variety of institutions and organizations.
