The Phoenix Union High School District (PXU) is proud to announce the offering of an Interrupting Implicit Bias training to the greater community as a way to combat hateful rhetoric and provide participants with ways to identify bias, both in themselves and the places in which they live and work.
In the 3-hour session, participants explore the concept of implicit bias and the ways in which it creates and perpetuates inequities in schools and communities. The session also offers ideas about restorative ways to work against bias and discrimination, and participants have the opportunity to practice these skills using real-life scenarios.
Ylenia Aguilar Velderrain, Board President of the Osborn School District, said, “As education leaders, we must be mindful of not just how we educate our students, but how we view them, address them, and set our academic expectations for each of them. Thank you, Phoenix Union High School District, for the training on implicit bias and culturally responsive education.”
