Implicit Bias Training – Security Management
This workshop gives you a good start about the concept of implicit bias and how it imparts to racial disproportionality. Participants will discuss and consider how those biases might occur in the daily routines of school security personnel and discuss implications for change.

During the workshop, the participants will be able to:
- Review the fundamental concepts of implicit bias in the context of security management
- Identify the connections between institutional racism, structural inequity, and implicit bias.
- Explore strategies to identify one’s own implicit biases and ways to promote a bias-free environment
