“No matter how good our intentions to be free of prejudice, we all have implicit biases that can have a serious impact on our work in schools.”  Participants will explore the concept of implicit bias and the nuanced behavior that is a product of our unconsciousness. As they engage with the materials, participant’s will have opportunities to reflect upon how your implicit biases may be impacting there work in schools as well as their personal lives. They will engage in activities to practice Compassionate Dialogue allowing them to learn skills of “interrupting” the behavior internally and interpersonally. Finally they will create an action plan around the essential question: What am I willing to do to not only become aware, but interrupt actions that reflect implicit bias.
