Understanding Bias

About Training

This 2-hour workshop focuses on examining how people and experiences have shaped our individual identity formation. We investigate how these experiences make each of us complex and how that complexity impacts our relationships with colleagues. Participants identify potential challenges that can be misinterpreted by colleagues as well as opportunities to build connections with each other.Materials:

Meet the Facilitator

Dr. Melissa Crum

Dr. Melissa Crum is an artist, education consultant and diversity practitioner who works with many educators in urban schools. She noticed that many teachers had challenges teaching and relating to students who did not share their same cultural background. So, she worked with a museum educator to create an arts-based professional development series that helps educators think about how they are thinking about their diverse students. Her personal story and professional practice work together to tell a creative, inspiring, and eye-opening message that everyone must hear.
