Implicit Bias: Reframing Our Assumptions

Hilton Austin Downtown | Salon A | 4th Floor
March 10 | 11:00–12:00
Panelists: Bill de la Cruz and Errica Dotson-Hooper

We all hold implicit and explicit biases and assumptions, despite our awareness of them — but we all also have the ability to acknowledge and deconstruct those biases. In this session, presenters will lead a collaborative, workshop-based discussion designed for K–12 educators who wish to further equity and inclusivity starting with their own relationships with students, peers, and families. Discussion will reflect on and deconstruct explicit biases while creating an affirming school culture.
