Unconscious Bias

Unconscious bias leaves us unaware of potential harm resulting from biased thinking. As we understand bias, we can address it to create a district culture in which everyone thrives.

As school leaders confront more and more information and have to act quickly while considering varying perspectives, they are primed to rely on biased thinking. Why? Because unconscious biases are how our brains compensate for overload. But bias can also inhibit performance growth and lead to poor decision-making. So how do we counteract the potentially harmful impacts of unconscious bias? 

Join us for this in-person two-day workshop in our office in Vancouver on Friday February 23 and Saturday 24.


The BC Principals' & Vice-Principals' Association is a voluntary professional association representing school leaders employed as Principals and Vice-Principals in BC's public education system.
