PSI – For YOU by US

We’re pleased to introduce the Prospect Sierra Institute (PSI), a new workshop series designed to illuminate the everyday practices of the various ways we lead and learn, our commitment to equity in progressive education, and innovative approaches to lifelong learning. Prospect Sierra faculty and staff will share their knowledge and experience through interactive, collaborative workshop sessions. Plan to engage with us joyfully and stay tuned for future workshops throughout the year!

Mitigating Implicit Bias in Hiring

With more and more research recognizing the ways implicit bias impacts hiring and the rising concern about the lack of diversity of leadership throughout the independent schools, Prospect Sierra took the opportunity with our most recent Head of School search process to directly challenge implicit bias. Learn how we engaged the Head Search Committee, which included long time board members, as well as a faculty and administrative representative, in exploring the concept of implicit bias and illuminating the team’s own biases during the process. Learn and practice a variety of strategies to decrease the impact of implicit bias when hiring for all positions in your community.

Workshop Leaders: Britt Anderson, Director of Equity and Inclusion and Nathan Tanaka, Middle School Division Head
