Macon – An expert from the National Training Institute on Race & Equality will provide Implicit Bias training to the Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office’s staff this fall, District Attorney David Cooke announced Wednesday.
Implicit Bias is an unconscious bias held toward a specific group of people. By attending this mandatory training, staff members will learn how to recognize and manage their bias to ensure fair treatment for everyone who comes into contact with the District Attorney’s Office
The training follows community sessions hosted by the Macon-Bibb County School-Justice Partnership in 2019.
“Our staff already strives to ensure that justice is fair. This training will give them the tools to be more conscious of bias as they seek justice for our community,” said District Attorney David Cooke.
