Social scientists are uncovering how human thoughts and feelings that occur outside of conscious awareness influence perception, judgment, and action. This fundamental understanding is critical for developing leaders for it is unconscious attitudes and biases that undermine best efforts for inclusion. In this talk, researcher Crystal Hoyt will share findings about stereotyping, hidden prejudices, and how leaders can be more mindful in their approach to diversity.

Belle is based on the true story of a mixed-race 18th-century woman named Dido Elizabeth Belle who was raised in upper-crust British society but never able to fully enter it. Dido is the illegitimate daughter of a slave woman and a Royal Navy admiral who leaves her in the care of her aristocratic great-uncle and his wife who raise her as an equal—or as much of one as the era permits.

Our Topic: Implicit Bias
Implicit bias refers to attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understandings, actions and decisions in an unconscious manner. This impacts our relationships with students and others.
The CEA RA, held each May, is CEA's highest policy-making body. During two days of business, approximately 500 delegates take action to decide Association policies, including adopting amendments to the CEA RA Standing Rules, the CEA Constitution and Bylaws, approving revisions to the CEA Resolutions, and voting on new business items.
The RA is convened every July during the Annual Meeting. The first two days are devoted to discussions, conferences, and exhibits-but the highlight is the Representative Assembly itself. During this important event, delegates debate issues that impact American public education, elect top officers, and set policy for the 3.2 million-member Association.
