Implicit Bias Training Series
Dr. Chris Martin is an Assistant Professor at St. Ambrose University’s School of Social Work. She received both her MSW and PhD from the University of Iowa School of Social Work. Her research area includes the study of the influence of implicit racial bias on decision making and how this contributes to the disproportionate representation of African Americans in special education.
