- Learning Outcomes
- About the Instructors
While most white educators would never describe themselves as being prejudiced, studies show that unconscious (implicit) bias is alive and well in educational settings. How can white educators, including librarians in school and public libraries, learn to not only notice their bias, but also act in ways that will promote and support racial equity? Join us for this important, and sometimes uncomfortable, conversation on how to address white racial bias and discrimination to create healthy, equitable learning environments.
- Understand the impact of racial identity on building healthy relationships with children
- Discover how white educators often avoid and/or derail important conversations about race
- Develop strategies to promote anti-racist teaching and learning practices
