Our series begins with an exploration of the underpinnings of a truly equitable society, and the extent to which the notion of privilege impacts our daily lives, as well as the lives of those with whom we interact.
Opportunities will be provided to share personal experiences with equity and inequity, and to engage with the presenter in a discussion of controversial issues related to privilege that may not always be apparent to us.
From projects in the South and tenements in the Northeast, to human relations consultant conducting keynote addresses and seminars nationwide, Dr. Bacon is uniquely prepared to address issues related to achieving equity for racially, ethnically, and socio-culturally different groups in our society. Earning a BA in Secondary Education from Fordham University, an MA in Guidance and Counseling and a Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Stanford University, she has had extensive experience as teacher, university instructor, counselor, social psychologist, administrator, probation officer and consultant in a variety of areas. Dr. Bacon has devoted most of her professional career primarily working with educators and other related professionals to transform systems into ones that ensure equity and equal access to available opportunities for the most vulnerable among us.
After more than four decades as a national consultant to school districts throughout the country, Dr. Bacon has concentrated most of her efforts in the last decade to serving as a Technical Assistance Facilitator related to the California State Department of Education assisting school districts in addressing issues related to the disproportionate overrepresentation of students of color and other marginalized youth in special education and the disciplinary system.
