Thursday’s keynote speaker was Verna Myers, the nationally recognized expert in diversity issues, who addressed an issue that is intrinsic to trust in any system of dispute resolution, whether within or outside of the courts:  how to recognize and address issues that can undermine diversity and give rise to perceptions of bias.   

  

 
 



Friday’s keynote speaker was Justice Carlos Moreno, whose service as Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court and a Federal District Court Judge for the Central District of California places him in a unique position to address the challenges faced by our courts.
