Building racial literacy to become more culturally competent as individuals and organizations
How does implicit bias negatively impact the experience of your students, or your ability to fulfill your organization’s mission? Identifying and understanding identity anxiety, stereotype threat, microaggression, and how children learn to understand differences is essential to building successful teacher-student relationships, and to continuing your organization’s internal equity and inclusion process.
