When Bias Gets in the Way: How to Recognize and Address Barriers to Supporting LGBTQ+ Students and Families
December 2, 2020 (8:00 am - 9:30 am)
Link to Register

Our unique experiences, identities, privileges and biases shape our perceptions of the world and how we act. In this interactive webinar, participants will explore the ways in which biases are formed and influence how we interact--consciously and unconsciously--with those around us. We will identify strategies for navigating our own biases, as well collaborating with families and colleagues who may take actions that have the unintentional consequence of creating unsupportive or even harmful educational environments for their LGBTQ+ students. A foundational understanding of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression is recommended, but not required.
