Silicon Valley Reads 2017

Silicon Valley Reads banner
 
In 2017, the 15th anniversary, Silicon Valley Reads focuses on “. . . and justice for all,” a conversation about the unconscious biases we all have, and how these assumptions, perceptions and prejudices can lead to people being treated unfairly, especially in the legal system. Everyone has, at one time or another, been unfairly judged because of some type of bias and our goal is to raise awareness​ and spark new ideas on how we can reduce bias in our legal system and our daily lives.
