it starts in the heart. the world needs more love.
Shannon Shuptrine

so
Lindy Lyles
35:19
Great reminder. “Intent is off the table, we need to talk about impact.”
Kimberly Toomey
35:21
its not age appropriate. Yes we have to teach age appropriate
Kimberly Toomey
35:40
what is it?
Panorama's Community Workshops
35:48
what has been ingrained in us will come out of us even in the classroom - @Bridgette thank you for sharing.

but love covers it.
Tammy Huson

Thank you. „Racism is not hate. Is it more closely related to ignorance and lack of self-awareness?
Dennis Johnston
36:02
Hi Dr. McAndrews!!

All babies prefer "similar" facial tones and features as their brains grow and the brain cells are pruned
Cindy Miller-Walker
36:32
So is white supremacy hate?

[Click to Tweet]: 🎙️"We learn biases when it comes to differences in skin color. Research shows just how young we absorb these implicit biases. Until we address them directly, we are not serving our students. Intent is off the table, we need to talk about impact." @DrTraceyBenson https://ctt.ac/UaDu3
Edith Suarez
37:01
Interesting. So where do we tie in racism to hate, because it definitely leads to hateful actions in many caes?
Esther Coleman
37:03
Some people are full of hate.
Kimberly Toomey
37:07
yes.
Edith Suarez
37:08
cases?*
Vanessa Hale
37:26
Yes. Hate is a part of it, but can not be used to cover up implicit racism that doesn’t necessarily stem from active hate
Kevin Ligon
37:51
The Lunch Date is short video that is so old that is shot in black and white. Really powerful and few words are spoken
Caryn Curry
38:02
Yessss, Demetrius!!!!!
Aubrie Tossmann
38:03
yes. we have to take our own responsibility for our own work rather than project it onto others and differentiate ourselves. I like this: we are on the same continuum
Edith Suarez
38:11
Thanks Vanessa Hale, that is clearer.
Rexanne Hill
38:20
Great reminder, Demetrius!
Kimberly Toomey
38:37
Jesus is the answer.
Vanessa Hale

compassion a great word.
Andrea Schneider

Becky, I was just having that meritocracy conversation with my mom!
Joanie Hauck
39:30
Please keep christ in your pocket there are muslims here.
Denita White
40:09
Seeing, valuing and honoring every person as fully human and deserving is the answer. It sounds easier than actually doing while we’re operating a system and society built on racism
Jenifer Lozano
40:11
Love that phrasing Becky!
Edith Suarez
40:16
YES! the structures in place don't work for all of our students.
Panorama's Community Workshops
40:27
[Click to Tweet]: "At Everett Public Schools, we don't try to fix kids. We fix our systems to focus on the strengths of our students. We ask, how are WE not meeting the needs of our students?" https://ctt.ac/9U2gi

Keisha Anderson
41:04
amen!!
Becky Barstein
41:09
Invitation to share with “all panelists and attendees”
Maria Link
41:24
I like what you are saying about "unlearning." In the disability field, I continue to teach and model "people first language." It's hard to still hear professionals talk about, "the disabled." our words hold power, but habits are hard to unlearn.
Esther Coleman
41:31
I think we should not confuse racism with bigotry.
Kathy FitzJefferies
41:53
It will take those of us who are white to humbly be willing to do some deep introspective work.
Becky Barstein
42:12
Completely agree Kathy! (And hi!)
Susan Benjamin
42:24
I agree Kathy
Panorama's Community Workshops
42:27
“self awareness may be one of the hardest social and emotional skills. Our brains also seek to protect= defensive, denial, avoiding, etc. School leaders can help staff in HONEST self-awareness by ensuring staff feel safe.” ** nodding Rena
Tammy Taylor
42:27
Agree!
jessica ceglowski
42:33
I agree Kathy!
Kimberly Toomey
42:40
He's in my heart not in my pocket.
Becky Barstein
42:44
I feel that Dr. Benson
Susan Benjamin
42:45
Can you deal with the comment bigotry vs racism?
Panorama's Community Workshops
42:47
“It will take those of us who are white to humbly be willing to do some deep introspective work.” — thank you, Kathy!
Dorothy Woods
43:37
Systemic Racism, Implicit Biases on Adult Social Emotional learning also for students are a form of trauma that impacts learning for students , impacts learning and teaching. This form of trauma needs to be recognized as trauma. Let us all be awaken, stay awoke understand and act on. The loudness of silence echoes in my ears and rumbles loudly in my heart. Now from fear to hope to action strategies and it begins with me.
Laree Henning
43:42
Highly recommend What does it mean to be White by Robin DiAngelo
Susan Ward
43:56
This is such a valuable conversation! I wish so many more people would have this discussion.
Melody Tartera
43:57
Robin also wrote White Fragility- Recommend!!
Meg Frideres
44:12
Dr. Benson I love how you made the point of how racial bias has entered our teaching practice.
Esther Coleman
44:25
Racism is about power -- race prejudice + power
Jayme Woods
44:47
Equity feels like oppression
Tammy Huson
44:51
Love this. Correct the behavior not the student. Address the adult behavior - regardless of intention. Addressing the impact.
Dennis Johnston
44:54
Dr. Benson, coming from a black man you've extended a bridge for white adults to access this conversation from a less defensive position. Well done and thank you
Becky Barstein
45:04
Make differences in practices!
Kimberly Toomey
45:41
it seems that it is a mindset thing then.
Becky Barstein
45:46
Thanks @Michelle - Dennis — Love your comment! Totally agree.
Meg Frideres
45:55
Giving examples of yourself does cause one to be less defensive. Thank you!
Kathy FitzJefferies
46:12
We are conditioned…but it won’t change until we get honest with ourselves and understand it needs to be a daily practice to be aware of how our thoughts, beliefs, and actions reflect the systemic racism that exist in our society. And be committed to take ownership when we trip over our white privilege.
Nicole Morris
46:41
Great point!
Rachel Solis
46:46
implicit bias is REAL
Miranda Prather
46:48
your examples are so helpful! Thank you!
Dane Mahi
46:50
Such a great reminder!
Kecia McDonald
46:52
Agreed! Dr. Benson is modeling "it starts with ME" so perfectly! Good hint as to how we need to address staff when we do PD
Panorama's Community Workshops
46:57
Great point, Kathy! Thank you for sharing
Dane Mahi
46:57
thank you for your advice!
Marla Kanevsky

Such a powerful conversation. Thank you, Dr. Benson.
Jenna Garrity
47:05
Agreed Dr. Benson!
Thea Meierkort
47:10
So helpful. Thank you!
Edith Suarez
47:15
Yes, being intentional and acknowledging our biases when we recognize them or others point it out!
Vivian Ragan
47:18
we need to be conscious of our bias and be proactive to work against it
Dane Mahi
47:18
Yes Marla exactly!
Chandra Irvin
47:21
Awareness must happen before change can begin!
Maria Link
47:26

Panorama's Community Workshops
47:28
“Not until someone pointed it out, how long have I been doing this?” So powerful.
Joanie Hauck
47:30
Honesty and being vulnerable. It’s hard but I must.
Rachel Solis
47:35
intentionality is the needed work but also actively discussing what it happening along the way helps create discourse and understanding.
Kimberly Toomey
47:36
wow. examining oneself. :)
Britney Cross
47:44
Self reflection is key to growth. We can't always see it so finding someone who can be honest with you and staying vulnerable is essential. Thank you for sharing!
Joelle Hood
48:02
To be more effective, we MUST BE more REFLECTIVE. :)
Shannon Shuptrine
48:08
and it is ongoing, lifetime work
Vivian Ragan
48:20
so true @Joelle
Kimberly Toomey
48:24
Joelle that is cool
Esther Coleman
48:24
We need to deconstruct the system and rebuild it, because it was designed by white people to advantage other white people. Simple as that.
Maria Link
48:30
Teachers need teacher buddies to observe and give honest constructive feedback. Thanks for sharing.
Chandra Garrett
48:30
Yes, definitely....we need to be more reflective!!
Kevin Ligon
48:55
Education is this generations civil rights movement
Rachel Solis
49:01
Yes Esther. True. White mail is what it was constructed by and for. Times have changed but that construct has not
Rachel Solis

I see a lot of comments about self-reflection which is great, but please do not miss the point that he could not have reflected until he was 1. placed in the position where someone could give him that feedback and/or opportunity for awareness then 2. decide to take that feedback into consideration

Could we share a panorama resource about data inquiry with the ladder of inference panelists
Tammy Huson
50:12
Love this Dr. Benson! You have to be open to the feedback and we are ALL biased. Self-awareness is the ultimate Adult SEL. Listen - without defensiveness at how your behavior lands. Smog of implicit bias - such a great analogy. Thank you. I have tried to attend about a dozen different webinars in the past month and just didn’t have the bandwidth. This was the gem of the ah-ha and the depth of truth. Lifetime work - yes, lifetime self-questioning. Lifetime work of owning the reality and facing it courageously if we want systemic change (in self and our schools and our cohorts and our own students).

do the work, be reflective, but it's not about patting ourselves on the back for doing it (white people). We need to actively work against systems of oppression...and help others to recognize these systems. We have to be open to feedback from others (all the time)!

I work with many educators and educational leaders in many districts across the country and so many of them say they feel unsafe to even share ideas in their meetings — fear of ridicule… fear of being wrong… fear of judgment… and this isn’t even about uncomfortable conversations! We need to really intentionally build belonging and connection and inclusivity and empower empathy. We need to teach people HOW to have these conversations…

We might not be able to change thinking about racism, implicit bias we can start with changing the one we can and the wisdom to know it is me. We can learn how to plant the seed though. Dorothy Woods

Dr. Benson, does your book provide more specifics as to HOW to hold ourselves (educators) accountable? We need to have to do better than just say we're accountable.

Even if I were able to somehow eliminate every bias I hold, it wouldn't change the system built around race in this country. I am not saying that's not important. I am suggesting we have to at least be aware that racism is much more than just bias. It is white privilege/advantage, internalized racial oppression, power, and more. E.G., the men who killed George Floyd felt they wouldn't face consequences.
