Sticks & Stones: Understanding Implicit Bias, Microaggressions, & Stereotypes
February 22 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Implicit Bias refers to the attitudes, beliefs or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases often manifest themselves in the forms of micro-aggressions and stereotypes. Everyone has Implicit Bias, but few of us are aware of it and how it impacts our daily experiences. For educators, Implicit Bias may have a negative effect on our students’ behavior and academic outcomes. This session will share real-life examples of different Implicit Bias, Micro-aggressions and Stereotypes, how they impact our schools and provide practical strategies to address and confront them in ourselves and others.
We will …
- Define implicit bias and identify key characteristics.
- Define microaggressions and identify key characteristics.
- Define stereotypes and identify key characteristics.
- Identify specific steps and strategies to challenge implicit bias, microaggressions, and stereotypes.
Training will be facilitated by NEA Staff, David Coleman.
