The Color of Silence: Addressing Unconscious Bias in Schools
Presented by Dr. Tracey Benson, University of North Carolina Charlotte 

Every hour in schools, educators make frequent decisions that have consequences for student. May of these decisions - often quick and instinctive - are unconsciously influenced by racial bias. Using examples from his experience as a school principal and recently published book on this topic, Dr. Benson will describe the conditions necessary for educators to address racial bias directly in ourselves and our school communities. 

Dr. Tracey Benson received his doctorate in Education Leadership from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Masters of School Administration from the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. He has served as an assistant professor of educational leadership, principal coach, high school principal, middle school vice-principal, district trainer, proficiency specialist, and elementary school teacher. His research explores the vestiges of structural racism in K-12 education that continue to impeder the academic success of students of color.
