Recent studies have shown that the opportunity gap persists for students of color in community colleges. Increasingly, students of color are making community colleges their first choice in higher education to seek certification, marketable job skills, or a degree; however, they are not completing their education at the same rate as their White counterparts. While any number of factors may contribute to this gap, we cannot rule out implicit bias as a factor. Biases not only have a negative impact on students’ self-esteem, they can reduce students’ will to try, resulting in inequitable outcomes. This webinar paints a picture of what implicit bias looks like in the classroom and provides strategies for reducing biases that inevitably impact students’ success.

By the end of this workshop, participants know or will be able to:

  • Have a clearer understanding of what implicit bias is and the factors that contribute to it.
  • Understand how to recognize implicit bias in ourselves and others.
  • Have strategies for preventing and interrupting bias in the classroom.

Certificate, Digital Badge, and CEU

All webinar participants can obtain, at no additional cost:

  • A digital badge and certificate that provide a web-enabled, verifiable documentation of your professional learning experience.
  • CEUs, which are awarded by passing the post-webinar learning assessment with a score of 80% or better.
