What and when are our kids learning about race and bias? Not sure how to handle complicated conversations at home? Rosetta Lee, local educator, diversity consultant and activist, will explain what racial concepts are absorbed at what age and provide straightforward language on how to introduce hard topics like race, bias, diversity, and inclusivity. She will teach us how to process our childrens’ points of view and methods to develop intentionally inclusive children. Rosetta will close with advice on how to incorporate lessons of respect and tolerance in day-to-day activities before leaving time for Q&A.
How much do your teens know about race and racism? In what ways do our students experience the effects of implicit bias? Does your family want to know how to be an ally? Join Rosetta Lee, local educator, diversity consultant and activist, for an evening full of age-appropriate tools on how to address the complexities of race, racism, privilege, bias and inclusivity. Walk away with increased confidence and tools will help you handle tough topics and conversations for years to come with your teen. Q&A to follow. Students in grades 6-12 are encouraged to attend with supervision.
