Unconscious Bias: When Good Intentions Aren't Enough

This issue brief explores how we can all strengthen our understanding of our internalized biases, so we can be more mindful of working toward equity.  Strategies suggested include developing agreements so we have courageous conversations and reducing stigma so we can talk openly and give honest feedback. The brief includes a link to a well-known self-assessment for implicit bias, and a survey that can help us get to know our students better.  While this brief is written for in-school educators, there is much that is relevant for out-of-school time settings.
