Communication Techniques to Overcome Gender Bias in the Legal Profession

Andie Kramer and Alton B. Harris, authors of Breaking Through Bias (Second Edition) and It’s Not You, It’s the Workplace, discuss the nature and extent of the achievement disparity between female and male lawyers, and why and how gender stereotypes and the biases that flow from them cause this disparity by preventing women from advancing in their legal careers as far and as fast as men. Andie and Al provide lawyers with specific insights and communication techniques they can use to avoid or overcome these often subtle and unconscious gender biases in their legal practices. The program includes a discussion of the relevance of ABA’s Model Rule 8.4(g), ABA Resolutions 10A, 108D, 300, 302, and ABA’s Mission Statement.
