In order to be an effective early childhood educator and anti-bias advocate, it is necessary,
first and foremost, to recognize and challenge one’s own biases. While this may not seem
difficult on a surface level, there are, in fact, various strategies and practices for recognizing
the overt and more subtle or covert biases one may possess.
In two to three pages, address the following:
Describe yourself, including any relevant information about your own social identity and
culture. Explain how your own identity and/or culture might influence your professional
practice. If applicable, share your own experiences with privilege, oppression, and/or bias.
Identify three strategies that you will use in order to explore and overcome your own
biases.
Explain why you chose these strategies and how exploring and overcoming your own
biases can positively impact the children and families with whom you work.

Bias and discrimination affect people from all walks of life. In the early childhood field, bias
and discrimination are especially troublesome, as they can have long-term impacts that can
