Sucheta Kamath, Founder and CEO, ExQ® is pleased to announce she will be attending and speaking at the upcoming 2020 NBASLH Convention in Houston, Texas, April 16-18, 2020.
Sucheta’s presentation, Equity, Implicit Bias & Personal Blind-spots, Session Number: LLC21, Track: Language, Literacy & Cultural / Linguistic Diversity, will be take place on Saturday, April 18th, from 1:00 – 2:00 PM CST in the Post Oak A Room, Omni Houston Hotel.
Join Sucheta as she talks about how Executive Function engages the brain’s self-guiding system to move clinicians from rigidity to openness, indifference to compassion and leniency to firm-flexibility while handling challenging situations. The session will address ways to reduce the impact of implicit bias, bridge the cultural mismatch, and use EF lens to enhance personal efficacy. Participants will:
- Discover how privilege and implicit bias affects equitable learning environments and interpersonal communication
- Learn to assess their own implicit bias, privilege, and professional practices pertaining to equitability
- Explore how implicit biases are malleable
- Assess their own EF skills and awareness of personal blind-spots concerning how to address vulnerabilities in their decision making while helping challenging children and difficult classroom environments
