Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: The Science and Storytelling of Unconscious Bias in Education
In recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s body of work and legacy, ACT’s Center for Equity in Learning invites you to a live virtual event with Dr. Valerie Purdie-Greenaway. The webinar is designed to strengthen understanding of the scientific evidence and community stories that showcase the effects of unconscious bias and stereotype threat in education.
The webinar will highlight research on how insider/outsider dynamics are created and outline the critical components needed to build trust and create inclusive environments where diverse social groups thrive and succeed. This conversation with Dr. Purdie-Greenaway will provide examples of how well-designed systems and programs, coupled with intentional individual action, can better support the diverse populations ACT and its stakeholders serve.
