Implicit Bias: Overcoming Individual and Systemic Biases

President-Elect, National Association of School Psychologists 

This is a virtual event. All registrants receive an invitation to Dr. Malone's live presentation on April 7, 2021.

Workshop Description

During this workshop, participants will examine the definition and theoretical underpinnings of implicit bias. They will also explore how individuals, especially teachers and administers, are impacted by implicit bias within the school day. Attendees will examine national and local educational policies to explore the role of implicit bias in the intention and/or implementation. Participants will complete activities to help them recognize their own implicit biases and ways to combat them. 

About the Presenter

Dr. Malone is an associate professor and coordinator of the school psychology program at Howard University. She received her PhD in school psychology from Temple University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in child clinical and pediatric psychology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Prior to obtaining her doctorate, Dr. Malone received her master’s in school counseling from Johns Hopkins University.

Her primary research interest relates to multicultural and diversity issues embedded in the training and practice of school psychology. Specifically, Dr. Malone focuses on multicultural competence, the ability to work effectively with diverse populations through the application of cultural knowledge and to demonstrate awareness of and sensitivity to cultural issues. The overarching themes of her research are: 1) development of multicultural competence through education and training, 2) diversification of the profession, and 3) the relationship between culturally responsive practice and PK-12 student outcomes.

Related to her interest in professional issues in school psychology, Dr. Malone has continuously held leadership positions in psychology professional associations. She is the president-elect of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) and has served on the NASP Board of Directors as the strategic liaison for the social justice strategic goal. In that capacity, Dr. Malone works closely with NASP boards and committees to develop and implement programs and activities to address social justice issues in school psychology and education. Additionally, Dr. Malone is an elected member of the American Psychological Association Board of Educational Affairs, the governance group which develops policies for education and training in psychology.
