Identity, Difference and Allyship: Raising our Awareness and Challenging Stereotypes through Reflection and Conversation

  • Events

Presented by Randi Reinhold, Boulder Country Day’s Coordinator of Equity & Inclusion.

February, 27, 2019. Research shows that throughout early childhood, children become aware of cultural identities such as gender, race, ethnicity and ability. They also begin to absorb society’s messages about these forms of identity, which often subtly reinforce stereotypes and bias. How can parents work to actively counter these pervasive messages in order to foster children’s anti-bias development? The goal of this workshop is to provide parents and caregivers with language and proactive strategies for addressing children’s questions and misconceptions around difference and modeling how to be an ally through action and dialog. Participants will be asked to engage in thoughtful reflection and discussion around personal identity.

Free and open to the public. RSVP here.
