What Were You Thinking!?

Unconscious Assumptions and Biases in Mediation Presented by the Mediation Society

September 28 | 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

2 units Elimination of Bias and 1 unit General

Underlying every stage of the mediation process are hidden assumptions and biases which often go unexamined:

  • Settlement negotiations should focus on objective criteria and outcome predictions
  • Participants are rational actors looking out for their own economic interests
  • Mediators should persuade, cajole, argue, twist arms, etc. in the same way regardless of a person’s sex, race, national origin, age, sexual orientation, or other characteristics
  • It is not the job of the mediator to call out prejudice or bias in the mediation

Hon. Tani Cantil-Sakauye (Ret.) and many more!

Hanson Bridgett, 425 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA
