A Learning Program for Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Professionals
Strengthening our practice to support children and families starts from within the individual. In this course, we will engage with each other about implicit biases and how they contribute to racial disproportionality in the NYC child welfare and juvenile justice systems. During this 3-part (six-hour) virtual session, participants will deepen their understanding and discuss the influences of implicit bias on institutional racism and structural inequity. Learners will also practice strategies to reduce implicit bias to enhance equitable decision-making in their work.
