As educators, we know that the feeling of belonging is critical to our students’ success. A sense of belonging to one’s school community builds on self-esteem, self-advocacy, and the ability to reflect on future possible selves, a key component to the pursuit of personal goals. Research shows that implicit bias, racial anxiety, stereotype threat, and microaggressions impact everyday relationships, decisions, skills, and behaviors in schools, creating obstacles to belonging. This interactive workshop will present the research on implicit bias, racial anxiety, stereotype threat, and microaggressions and possible interventions to mitigate the cumulative effects of these phenomenon.
This event will be experiential and engaging, weaving presentations and discussions with activities. Participants can expect to learn effective strategies and tools to take back to school on Monday. All are welcome to attend, though particular focus will be on middle and upper school (see more information on our similar event for early education here).
Brief definitions of the terminology mentioned above:
Implicit Bias = embedded stereotypes that heavily influence decision-making
Racial Anxiety = distance, lack of eye contact, less friendly tone
Stereotype Threat = fear of confirming a stereotype that one’s group is less able to perform
Microaggressions = daily verbal & behavioral indignities that communicate hostility or negate
