Britt Hawthorne provides anti-bias teaching for school administrators, teachers, and other educators to create equitable learning environments for students from preschool to high school.
If you are a school leader interested in expanding your knowledge of anti-bias education and antiracism, you are in the right place!
Educators have a special responsibility to create culturally supportive learning environments for the learners they work with every day. It can be difficult to know where to start when addressing your personal bias, not to mention noticing and correcting the bias as it begins to form in young children. Britt helps educators, like yourself, looking for guidance in how to foster strong, supportive relationships in the classroom.
How can we, as educators, transform our learning spaces into supportive, unbiased environments for learners of all ages? Anti-bias education focuses on creating a learning environment equitable for every facet of human difference—including race, ability, learning styles, culture, family structure, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and age. Learn how to make your classroom more inclusive, unbiased, and inviting to differences.
Anti-bias education empowers young learners to build confidence through establishing strong self-identities, develop critical thinking skills, and foster empathy for their classmates.
Not sure where to start? Need a roadmap for creating a classroom that centers on anti-bias and antiracism? Let’s start with having critical conversations with each other, building more useful classroom libraries, and making a plan. This in-person or virtual workshop will support educators to have a shared language, create conversation agreements, unpack internal biases, and move in the right direction. Each workshop is completely customizable to meet your school’s needs. Each workshop includes access to on-demand webinars to keep the work moving forward.

I highly recommend this training for any educator who would like to learn more about what it means to create an anti-bias and anti-racist classroom. Our initial training was thought-provoking and engaging and I’m looking forward to learning more from Britt

Do you want to learn how to create unbiased home environments for your children? This in-person workshop is designed for schools or private communities interested in delving into anti-bias education at home, whether they are new to the topic or have already begun the work.
“I have attended the anti-bias at home webinar by Britt twice now and consider it essential viewing for everyone – it’s something you can work on, reflect on and then return to. Britt is great at getting you to slow down and take note of your experiences and history with racism and prejudice and work you can do. Well-meaning parents often want to make their kids fix racism but here we recognize the work starts with us. It is an amazing starting point with practical tips and explanations. “
“Her practical guidance not only corrects common misconceptions about how these delicate issues should be addressed …… her advice is helpful for both “bigger” situations and in day-to-day parenting. Absolutely an invaluable resource to parents!”
“I learned more in my first 15 minutes with Britt ……….than I have in almost a decade of being a parent………I’m so excited (and reassured!) to have these new tools in my parenting toolbox!”
Never received formal training in cultural humility and racial justice? Most of us never have. This self-timed online course will help you move from ignoring and avoiding critical conversations about bias to taking action.
This is an excellent, in-depth resource for teachers to become better able to address bias in the classroom. The tone is helpful and caring and a wealth of additional resources – books, websites – are recommended for teachers to further their own self-education.
This course was amazing and gave me concrete tools that I can use to address bias in my school and in the world.
This introduction to anti-bias education is a necessary next step towards true equity in Montessori. I feel well equipped to move forward in my personal and professional journey in becoming anti-bias.
The Introduction to Anti-bias Education workshop is an essential step in working toward an environment where all children see themselves, can be themselves and learn about the world around them.
Children need to know people of the global majority come from a place of power before learning about the oppression the communities experience.— Britt Hawthorne
