This workshop will provide families and educators with a framework for anti-bias education and practical tips on how to respond to children’s comments and questions about differences, how social identity develops in young children and beyond, and how to have courageous conversations about potentially challenging topics.

This workshop will be led by Debbie LeeKeenan.
