Understanding the Role of Implicit Bias in our Work Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Champlain Valley Head Start
Instructor: CQ Strategies, LLC

The expression, “It's like riding a bicycle" is common slang for the idea that once something (i.e. riding a bike) is learned, you can always recall how to do it. Implicit Bias is our attitudes or stereotypes that unconsciously affect our understanding, actions, and decisions. Come explore how implicit bias may be influencing us without our knowledge, and some things it has in common with riding a bike. Participants will leave the session with greater understanding of how unconscious biases are impacting educational environments, and strategies for how to recognize our own implicit biases.
