Seminar Description: The Kirwin Institute defines implicit biases as attitudes or stereotypes that are activated unconsciously and involuntarily. Our goal during this seminar is 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 will have 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.
