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
