Last week on the podcast we talked about having what we called “the willingness to begin to look at our own hidden biases” and the willingness to look at how we are contributing to equity in education. We based a lot of what we talked about on the book Coaching for Equity: Conversations that Change Practice by Elena Aguilar. This book started to spark some deep conversations between the two of us and we thought that was the opportunity for us to begin to dive into this very important conversation.
So on this week’s episode we dive in a bit deeper and discuss what it means to come to this conversation with an open mind and heart. Approaching a conversation with an open mind allows us to be able to listen to new ideas, concepts, beliefs, or points of view without shutting them down. It also means being curious and asking questions of ourselves and others.
Listen in with the willingness to look at our own hidden biases and with an open mind.
