Ethics and Elimination of Bias Training.
AM Horizons Training Group
We are the leader in workforce diversity for government and educational institutions. We specialize in the best practices in areas of Equity for all, battling Micro-Inequities and increasing Discretionary Effort.
It is our aim to empower Attorneys, Social Workers, Law Enforcement Officers and Human Resource Managers to gain new knowledge and examine each of our implicit bias so that we can be aware of our personal/professional bias to eliminate the barriers that create discriminatory practices in our field of work, in the lives of our constituents and in society at large.
Preaching to the chorus
Preaching to the choir is a necessary activity. Some choir members don't know the song, others need help staying on key. So the choir must practice. The same hold true for those of us in the helping professions. We must expand our knowledge about different cultures, changing demographics and the shifts and trends occurring in the popular culture.
_Core Program Offerings
Bullying and Intimidation Intervention
Bullying and Cyber-intimidation harm schools and create costly liabilities in our workplaces. We find the best solutions for you both in our facilitated classroom discussion and through our online course.
Creating a Respectful Environment
As our workplaces become more complex in ethnic, cultural and learning styles, we can empower employees to communicate and build upon the synergy of their diverse experiences to replace conflict with growth.
Conflict Management in the Organization
Finite resources, vague goals and limited time are the volatile mixtures that produce conflict. In this workshop, employees learn innovative methods to negotiate conflict productively.
Cultural Sensitivity Coaching
Our world continues to change and our social and business networks are becoming increasingly integrated systems. Events in China can enhance or disrupt our daily lives, because we are all interconnected. This session explores the public and private roles we all play and the profitable lessons we can learn from each other.
Microinequities and discrimination can undermine workplace and social cooperation. In this session, supervisors and business leaders learn how to minimize unproductive and unprofitable behavior and optimize the discretionary efforts of their employees.
Sexual Harassment and the Hostile Work Environment
Workplaces free of harassment produce employees that are more willing and able to focus on work goals by increasing their personal effectiveness while allowing co-workers to grow. This session explores interpersonal techniques that bypass harassment and empower employee relations to maximize a return on investment.
Why Ethics and Elimination of Bias Training?
Summary of CLE Rule on Ethics and Elimination of Bias
The Minnesota Supreme Court issued an order making ethics and diversity training mandatory for Minnesota attorneys. As of July 1, 1996, lawyers licensed in Minnesota are required to take three hours of ethics courses and two hours of elimination of biastraining as part of the 45 credit requirement to keep their attorney licenses up to date.
The Rules of the State Board of Continuing Legal Education incorporate the concept that there are now three subcategories of CLE: Standard CLE, Ethics/Professional Responsibility CLE, and Elimination of Bias CLE.
In order to be approved as ethics or professional responsibility under these rules, courses or sessions within courses must be at least 30 minutes, and must be separately identified as Ethics or Professional Responsibility.
In order to be approved as elimination of bias courses, courses or sessions within courses must be at least 60 minutes in length and must be identified as fulfilling the Elimination of Bias requirement, and must focus on issues in the legal profession and in the practice of law and not upon issues of bias in society in general.
