SAINT PAUL, Minn. - May 23, 2016 - PRLog -- For students of color to excel in school and university, it is vital educators treat them with respect and dignity regardless of their ethnic background or gender.  Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Few understand this as well as Dr. Artika Tyner, educator, advocate for justice, author and head of education group Planting People Growing Justice Leadership Institute ("PPGJ").  Recently, PPGJ has announced the launch of Dr. Tyner's latest lecture series and training program "Implicit Bias: A Hidden Barrier to Academic Success for Students of Color," that expertly addresses implicit bias, stereotype threat and cultural taxonomy, with an emphasis on the focus areas of effective instruction and healthy student-teacher relationships.

"In the education arena, implicit bias shapes how educators perceive students of color and their capabilities, how educators interact with multicultural students and parents, and how school leaders administer discipline," commented Dr. Tyner about the importance of her new lecture series and training program.  "Despite the far-reaching impact of implicit bias, there is hope for the future. Educators can take proactive steps by learning about implicit bias and developing practical tools for de-biasing strategies."

A complete schedule of Dr. Tyner's lecture dates and other products and services can be found at the Planting People Growing Justice website, as well as more details on the educator's remarkable, inspirational story.

Early feedback from event attendees has been positive across the board.

J.C., a recent event attendee said in a five star review, "Planting People, Growing Justice has raised my awareness and accommodation of different perspectives or world views as a way of helping others achieve their goals."

An educational administrator stated: "The approach and quality of the speaker are vital and this was excellent! Practical applications, that I can take back and begin to use to further my work within my district."
