The Illinois Supreme Court amended the Illinois rule regarding the professional responsibility minimum continuing legal education requirement, Rule 794(d). The Rule will still require Illinois lawyers to complete 6 hours of professional responsibility CLE every reporting period, but effective July 1, 2017, of those 6 hours, one hour must be devoted to diversity and inclusion, and one hour must be devoted to mental health and substance abuse.  This seminar will cover BOTH of these topics!

1:00-2:30 PM: "We The People: How to Overcome Blindspots, Biases, and Stereotypes"

Speaker: Michelle Silverthorn, Diversity & Education Director - Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism


This highly interactive program starts out by simulating the experience of being on the outside
group looking in. Participants then engage in a group discussion on why many Americans find it
difficult to engage in subjects of difference, particularly racial difference, and how that difficulty is
reflected in the ongoing diversity and inclusion challenges in the workplace. Finally, through the
use of large and small group activities, participants will recognize how implicit biases and
stereotypes affect how they perceive people who are different, practice how to speak with their
peers about difference, and learn crucial skills to resolve conflicts that can arise when different
perspectives are given equal space.
By the end of the course, participants will have:
1. Recognized the key role diversity and inclusion play in today’s workplace.
2. Implemented strategies to challenge biases and stereotypes.
3. Cultivated conflict resolution skills to utilize in the workplace.
