Navigate Conversations About Race and Racism with Young Children

We know that very young children notice race, but we don’t always know how to engage young children on the topic in healthy ways. Join us for a workshop designed especially for early childhood and elementary educators on engaging young children in conversations about race and racism.

Participants will learn about healthy racial identity development, how young children internalize messages about race, and how to have conversations about race with children in ways that are age-appropriate, culturally responsive, and trauma-informed.

April 5, 2022: 

This session will focus on the research about how and when children learn messages about race, as well as strategies to engage young children in healthy and important conversations about race and racism.

April 7, 2022: 

This session will allow participants to put into practice the skills and strategies learned in the first session. Participants will practice responding to school-based scenarios involving race and racism in thoughtful and appropriate ways.
