Presented by: Milton A. Fuentes, Psy.D
Implicit bias, what exactly is it and how might it present itself in your life? Do you look past differences to see possibility? Perhaps you have a preconceived idea about a child that inhibits them being the best that they can be. Exploring these and other questions about bias and inclusivity and the strategies to address these issues will be covered in this webinar.
In this webinar participants will be able to: (a) define and explain the science of implicit bias; (b) discuss the empirically-based challenges of implicit biases in their respective settings; and (c) identify strategies that could address implicit biases.
