Mediators have multiple responsibilities, including managing the process of the mediation. In this capacity, it is critical to ensure the involved parties have a fair process. They intend to be impartial and to provide opportunities that will move the parties toward deeper understanding, perhaps a shift in perspective, and even solution if that is attainable. There is much they can do to bring parties to ripeness, have them be more open and engaged, and to create safe environments so the parties feel more comfortable exploring possibilities they had not previously considered. However, what they do not consciously intend to do, but may be present without our even noticing, is the appearance of their own implicit biases. They all have them, embedded somewhere, and the more they are aware of their own biases the more they will be able to manage them. This session will explore the science behind implicit bias, engage in an experiential activity where we can uncover some of our own potential biases, and identify strategies to call upon to manage them in our mediation sessions.
