Examining our biases, Exploring our comfort zones and Expanding our perspectives
“Unfair-The New Science of Criminal Injustice”
Weaving together historical examples, scientific studies, and compelling court cases, Adam Benforado, author of Unfair – The New Science of Criminal Injustice, shows how our judicial processes fail to uphold our values and protect society’s weakest members. With clarity and passion, he lays out the scope of the legal system’s dysfunction and proposes a wealth of practical reforms that could prevent injustice and help us achieve true fairness and equality before the law.
Reflecting on Benforado’s inferences, IBPW will host a panel discussion to examine our biases towards race, culture, education, religion, financial status and demographics. The topics will explore our comfort zones and expand our perspective to become more tolerant, open and non-judgmental human beings.
Come join us for a dialogue with our diverse and distinguished panelists in conversation with
