Human Trafficking Webinar Series – The Impact of Bias, Inequities, and Injustices in Supporting Students Impacted by Human Trafficking
The values, beliefs, and stereotypes we all have affect how we perceive our world and the people in it. Unfortunately for all of us, sometimes these can become biases. For educators, this potential is incredibly critical as it could result in misinterpreting behavior and providing insufficient or inappropriate supports. For example, one’s bias could result in missing important cues from students that indicate they are involved in human trafficking.
This webinar will share how bias affects the identification and support of students involved in human trafficking; provide suggestions on how we can lessen the impact of bias, inequities, and injustices in this work; and offer some examples of techniques, practices, and policies that help ensure a more equitable approach to supporting students impacted by human trafficking.
