Event description
Join Us for an Implicit Bias Round Table on February 28, 2020 at BCSC Terrace Room

About this Event

This session is a continuation of a successful Implicit Bias workshop that was held on November 15th, 2019.

The round table is designed to continue the local dialogue and discuss how we, as Bartholomew County residents, can minimize and eliminate decision making that contributes to disparities based on race, ethnicity, gender, and geography in youth-serving systems.

Charles Edwards, Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation administrator, will provide a 30-minute high-level overview of implicit bias followed by table questions and full room discussion. Join us in this important work by exploring implicit bias through our own experiences and discuss how we can work together to support our diverse community.

What is Implicit Bias?Implicit bias predicts and determines our decisions and actions; it determines how we positively or negatively respond to the youth we serve. It is important to recognize that we all have biases - this is how we process and organize information and make sense of the work around us.

Speaker: Charles Edwards, Assistant Principal – Columbus East High School

Since 2005, Charles has co-chaired BCSC's district-wide diversity council which has tackled difficult topics related to diversity such as privilege, the burden of representation, and disproportionality. Currently, he's providing and helping the district frame the conversation around the subject of implicit bias.

Facilitator: Heather Carson, Director of Council for Youth Development

Heather has spent over twenty years committed to the well-being of all young people through her work as a professional educator, community organizer, and parent. She joined CYD in 2017 to assist the coalition in designing the community’s first Youth Master Plan. CYD consists of active community partners serving and supporting youth, birth to eighteen, and their families throughout Bartholomew County.

Online registration is required. Space is limited to 70 attendees
