How do we learn about our various group identities like female, African American, Buddhist, homosexual, middle class, etc.? From whom do we learn the meaning of these terms? What messages have we internalized about ourselves and others? What are the differences that result in one person having a healthy self-identity and another person experiencing own-group shame and hatred?

At this event, participants will learn how we can instill positive self-identity in our children and coach them to be positive influences on others' identities. Together, we can co-create inclusive communities that work toward success for all.

This workshop will be led by Rosetta Lee.
