While our intent is to be unbiased, sometimes our unconscious minds get in the way. It is important to explore and name the biases that inhibit diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice in our schools.
Participants will explore an outgrowth of implicit bias. We will explore how we might more directly confront exclusionary practices that might cause inequity, sexism, racism, and injustice.
