Disrupting Implicit Bias in Early Childhood Programs

This presentation will provide an overview of implicit bias in early childhood environments and its impact on interactions and relationship building.  Participants will engage in strategies to reduce implicit bias and examine and explore stressful situations in the early childhood environment that are most likely to be influenced by implicit bias. ‘White Spaces’ will be discussed as areas where implicit bias lives and is expressed.
