Implicit Bias Awareness & Mitigation

Free Virtual Series IMPLICIT BIAS AWARENESS & MITIGATION For educators to truly strive for equity they must first understand how they may be unintentionally contributing to the problems they seek to solve. In this comprehensive series, world-renowned Social-Psychologist and Implicit Bias trainer Dr. Bryant T. Marks helps participants become aware of how their own subconscious mind can interfere with the positive intentions they have for students and families. Participants will realize that we all have biases and they are a natural part of the human experience. It does not make us bad people. After participants learn about how the unconscious mind works they will have opportunities to reflect and then develop a plan to take action to mitigate their implicit bias using research-based strategies. Upon completion of Implicit Bias training, participants will: • Understand what implicit bias is • Understand how to uncover their own biases • Understand how biases impact others and the organization • Develop a personal action plan to mitigate personal biases • Apply their learning in personal practice Facilitated by: Dr. Bryant T. Marks Founder & Chief Equity Officer, The National Training Institute on Race & Equity; Professor of Psychology, Morehouse College; Former White House Advisor
