Race Matters: A Community Dialogue
Here's an important message from the Glencoe-Tabor Race Matters team:
Please join us Tuesday, 11/19, from 5:30-8:00 for an important dialogue with our feeder schools. The topic is Implicit Bias, and the presenter is art teacher Mrs. Molly Renauer’s husband, Brian.
Dr. Brian Renauer, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Portland State University, will be leading the Parent Equity Night in an exploration of “implicit bias.” We often think of bias as being a conscious part of our thinking and decision-making. However, recent research (e.g. see Project Implicit out of Harvard) has shown that biases against certain persons or groups can come from unconscious sources. In other words, we may not even realize this type of bias. Implicit bias means we do not always have conscious, intentional control over the processes of social perception, impression formation, and judgment that motivate our actions.
Dr. Renauer will engage the group in a general discussion of implicit bias focusing on The Implicit Bias Project out of Harvard. If you’d like to learn about implicit bias before the meeting you can read about The Harvard Implicit Bias Project here (https://www.projectimplicit.net/index.html). You can also take their implicit association test, which has been taken by over 2 million people, to explore your own potential implicit biases (https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/).
Please RSVP for translation services, pizza, or childcare.

With parent-teacher conferences just around the corner, it is important to know that PPS offers free interpretation services and other resources for our linguistically diverse families. If you need an interpreter for the conferences, which will be held Nov. 25-26, let your school know.
