Leading for Equity: The Hidden Bias of Good People

Implications for School Superintendents and the Students and Families They Serve

Implicit bias is everywhere and affects everyone. We all have implicit bias. The impact of our implicit bias on others significantly depends on our social and professional roles in society. Bias held by educators, police officers, physicians, prosecutors, and criminal court judges can significantly affect the life outcomes of large segments of society.

Join Dr. Bryant Marks, Executive Director of the National Institute on Race and Equity (Atlanta, GA), as he presents on the understanding of implicit biases and their impacts on America’s youth and educators. Participants will explore the effects implicit biases have on the attitudes and behaviors of targeted groups. Dr. Marks will share how to implement practices or policies that reduce the likelihood implicitly biased beliefs will lead to biased behaviors.


The American Consortium for Equity in Education, publisher of the "Equity & Access" journal, celebrates and connects the educators, associations, community partners and industry leaders who are working to solve problems and create a more equitable environment for historically underserved pre K-12 students throughout the United States.
