To provide programs and services that are culturally responsive and equitable as society continues to become more racially and ethnically diverse, practitioners need to examine, challenge, and unlearn their implicit biases and adopt an equity-centered framework for serving individuals, families, and communities from various racially, ethnically, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

In this webinar, presenter Ebonyse Mead, Ed.D., CFLE, will discuss:

  • the definition of implicit bias;
  • examples of biases and microaggressions;
  • root causes of biases and stereotypes (e.g., socialization and media influences);
  • unlearning implicit biases;
  • cultural disconnect; and
  • key concepts and constructs, including individual, structural, and institutionalize racism; colorblindness; diversity; equity; inclusion; and culturally responsive practices.

Approved for 1 hour of CFLE education credit.
