Addressing Implicit Biases

We discuss how to recognize implicit biases, and how principals can address them in their schools.

Topics: Equity and Diversity

Ensuring a fair and equitable education for students is essential to their success and well-being, which is why it is so important for principals to understand implicit bias. Whether it manifests in students, staff, or importantly themselves, school leaders should be aware of the impact of bias and how to address it. In this episode, Center for Diversity Leadership fellow Dr. Ryan Daniel talks with Dr. William Blake about what implicit bias means to them, and strategies to both acknowledge and address these biases in their work and lives.

Dr. William Blake, a former teacher and principal, currently serves as director of redesign in the District of Columbia Public Schools.
