Addressing Racial Microaggressions in Our Schools
For the past decade, Ms. Gwendolyn Miller focused her career exclusively on providing educators with tools designed to identify and eliminate racial microaggressions in the classroom. As a result, she has developed pedagogical strategies that enable teachers to create the optimal academic environment, free of racial microaggressions.
Through her online courses, educators gain expert insights into the classroom experiences of students of color and their responses to racial microaggressions. As a result, educators will learn the major causes of racial microaggressions:
The failure to recognize unconscious biases;
The failure to recognize how unconscious bias plays a major role in discriminatory assumptions about students of color;
The failure to recognize how these assumptions affect daily interactions with students of color; and
The failure to recognize how these assumptions ultimately result in racial microaggressions.
A Lifetime of Relevant Experience
Following a career as a classroom teacher, Gwendolyn decided to pursue her Master of Science Degree in Education from the Applied Psychology and Human Development Division of the University of Pennsylvania, Graduate School of Education. During her studies, she conducted significant research on the issue of racial microaggressions in the classroom. Inspired by her research, she embarked on her a career as a consultant on racial microaggressions. She has worked with school faculties and district leaders to promote positive inter-ethnic interactions and enhance the educational experience of students of color.
A Proven Approach
Gwendolyn has presented workshops related to the problem of systemic racism in educational institutions at numerous conferences, including the National Association for Multicultural Education, Teachers College Roundtable on Multicultural Psychology and Education, National Conference on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in Higher Education, American Psychological Association Convention and the National Association of Independent Schools People of Color Conference.
