Are you uncomfortable discussing bias with your teen? Wondering how to broach a complex yet important topic?
Implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. We are looking forward to an informative discussion on this important issue.
Dr. Aaminah Norris will facilitate an interactive discussion about ways that implicit bias impacts our everyday interactions. We will delve into ways that we can identify and learn from our biases. We will discuss research on ways that bias impacts our work and school lives and our communication with others whose identities are different from our own. In particular, we will focus on how implicit bias impacts marginalized groups. Parents will receive take-aways for approaching this topic with their teens.
Dr. Aaminah Norris has more than 20 years of experience supporting schools and not for profit organizations in addressing issues of educational equity for low income students from historically marginalized communities. Her background in education includes teaching, administration, and curriculum-development for thousands of students in grades K-16. She researches, teaches, and advocates use of digital and social media in formal and informal learning environments to address racial and gender inequities. Dr. Norris authored curricula for the films Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In.
