Checking Your Implicit Biases with Diversity Talks

Seminar Description: The Kirwin Institute defines implicit biases as attitudes or stereotypes that are activated unconsciously and involuntarily. The goal of this seminar was to help educators and leaders become more aware of the implicit biases they have and acknowledge how they might show up in their classrooms and schools. Participants had the opportunity to explore how their environment and value system influences implicit biases. With greater awareness, we can successfully interrupt our biases in an effort to better serve all students.
