From NYC Bar: Mindfulness Tools to Support a More Inclusive Legal Environment


When: August 3, 2020

Where: Webinar

NYC Bar presents “Mindfulness Tools to Support a More Inclusive Legal Environment” webinar

With the death of George Floyd, many leaders and organizations are even more open and receptive to bringing about change and are actively engaged in creating a more diverse and inclusive work environment. Join Deputy Commissioner and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Cecilia B. Loving and Mindfulness and Social Justice Expert Dena Samuels as they share tools about how to create a more inclusive work environment through mindfulness and other restorative practices. Through Commissioner Loving’s work in moving beyond compliance with compassion, connection and commitment for racial healing and Dr. Samuel’s research on the “Mindfulness Effect” and social justice, they will share tools for how legal practitioners and administrators can be more proactive in supporting a more inclusive work environment. Together, they will teach how we can lean into our discomfort to be more accountable to the necessary work of inclusion; how we can learn to connect with everyone regardless of their differences; how we can ‘hold space’ to embrace the stories of everyone; how we can reduce implicit bias and develop better judgment; and how we can employ mindfulness tools to enhance our emotional intelligence and thus our ability to be appreciative leaders.
