CLEVELAND, OH, June 30, 2016 – Legacy Business Cultures announced today that it has been selected by the Department of Justice to develop and deploy implicit bias training for all of the agency’s 5,800 attorneys. Legacy’s efforts will be part of a much broader DOJ initiative to roll out training to employees as well as agents within the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and U.S. Marshals Service (USMS).
According to Legacy CEO, Paul Meshanko,
“Understanding and managing implicit bias is one of the most requested areas of training that we currently offer our clients. Whether it’s for government agencies or corporate clients, understanding the pattern of ‘shortcuts’ that our brains take for the sake of efficiency can have significant impact not only on how we treat one another, but also how well we do our jobs and ultimately deliver on our mission.”
Other federal clients using Legacy to train its employees include The US Army, US Air Force, US Navy, Dept. of Homeland Security, The US Treasury, The Congressional Office of Compliance and The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
To help design and deliver the training, Legacy has contracted with an all-star team of both former and current prosecutors who have many years of experience speaking and training on the topic of implicit bias. According to Project Lead and former prosecutor, Steven Jansen,
“The primary reason we believe Legacy’s proposal beat out seven others for this project was the degree to which our recommended approach met the DOJ’s requirements for both content expertise and delivery methodology. Our entire team is very excited to participate in such an important initiative.”
