This unconscious bias workshop is designed to create an awareness, among members of school management and teachers of all subjects, about the barriers that can inhibit students from engaging in particular subjects at primary and secondary school. Investigating your own personal unconscious biases and the biases of your students can impact student interactions and student-teacher relations within the classroom. Focussing on strategies to minimize negative biases around the school and promote inclusivity and diversity in the classroom is one of the core outcomes of this workshop.
