Webinar - When Implicit Bias Runs Amok, with Dr. Dottie Morris
Our own implicit biases and assumptions can separate and divide us unnoticed. Genocide is the horrific end of a trajectory that begins with low level aggressions that can have their start in implicit bias. What can we do to remember those who suffered unimaginable tragedy, and to prevent future atrocities? We can become aware and we can learn to speak up. April is Genocide Awareness Month.
Audience: K-12 educators, including classroom teachers, specials teachers, paraprofessionals, and administrators. Parents and community members too!
