The Kirwan Institute for the study of race and ethnicity, located at the Ohio State University, defines implicit bias as “attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases, which encompass both favorable and unfavorable assessments, are activated involuntarily and without an individual’s awareness or intentional control.” During our meeting Jessica Pepin will lead attendees on a journey of self-exploration and honest conversation around implicit bias; most particularity how such affects students, parents, and teachers in our public school education system.
Below is a link to the 2017 Kirwan Institute report on implicit bias. This report addresses implicit bias, as researched and identified, with regard to criminal justice; health; education; housing, and neighborhood dynamics. We encourage you to review this report before the training.
This meeting is open to the public – all are welcome.
