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 microaggressions 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’ behavioral and academic outcomes. These sessions will share real-life examples of different Implicit Biases, Microaggressions and Stereotypes, and how they impact our schools, as well as providing practical strategies to address and confront them in ourselves and others.

Facilitated by Kristin Hayes-Leite, Narragansett; Richard Martin, East Providence; Crystal Monteiro, East Providence; Lisa Parker, Cumberland
