Actions and Detail Panel
Implicit Bias in Educational Settings
Thu, March 30, 2017, 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM CDT
Through experiential means and lively discussion, participants will unpack the ways in which implicit bias impacts our work and lives as educators. We'll explore the most current research which describes the ways unconscious beliefs particularly impact our young people of color and students with disabilities. As we uncover common origins of bias, we'll also identify specific conditions in which implicit bias can flourish. Though we can never eliminate our own biases, we'll learn meta-cognitive and procedural strategies to increase self-awareness and activate a commitment to fairness and transparency.
Please join us for coffee and networking at 8am, and then engage in an interactive and meaningful session with colleagues from across the region! Registration will remain open until Friday, March 24th. Space is limited, so please register soon! If you have questions, please email Stephanie at email@example.com.
