Training Overview

Start the school year by looking at your unconscious bias. Invest in conquering this plague during the summer.

After the turmoil of the pandemic and the country’s reckoning with racial inequality, your students and staff deserve to return to a school free of unconscious bias. This summer is the perfect time to devote attention to eradicating this devastating plague and finding a way to treat all members of your school community equitably.

You don’t have to be racist to be biased. Even when people wish to treat everyone equally, ingrained stereotypes can affect visual perceptions, behavior, memory, and attention. Once you realize when and how unconscious bias creeps into school, you can chart a path forward to eliminate it.
