Check Out My Latest Post on Leadership & Implicit Bias in Schools at the ATLIS Blog

This year the Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools is hosting a series of seminars based on 4 essential books that all educational leaders should read. I'm hosting the first seminar on Mahzarin Banaji's and Anthony Greenwald's Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People.

The book explores how implicit bias shapes the perspectives and behaviors of all people, even those with the best intentions. It was written by the same people who developed the Implicit-Association Test at Harvard University. If you haven't taken one of the IATs, I strongly urge you to do so (they have tests on all sorts of topics, ranging from race and gender to things as innocuous as our biases towards insects).

Go here to read my blog post about the book, and if you're an ATLIS member, join us September 26 for a live webinar discussion of the book.
