Attention all managers and supervisors in government attorney’s office’s – NDAA is offering three sessions the week of October 13th, 2020 designed just for you! The government attorney’s office may be military, civilian, tribal government, federal or state and local. These sessions are designed for attorney and non-attorney administrators. We welcome chief prosecutors tasked with both administrative and litigation responsibilities, attorney-administrators have transitioned from litigation to purely administrative duties, and non-attorney administrators with hands-on working relationships with attorney litigators.

The speakers will overview the importance of understanding and embracing the cultural differences among individuals in your community and office as well as acknowledging the implicit or unconscious biases that individuals have that causes them to attribute particular qualities by an individual to a member of another social group. They will look into the root cause of these biases and discuss creating an office environment that mirrors and respects cultural diversity and is sensitive to racial disparities.
