Introduction to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Early Education

June 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A conversation on diversity, equity, and inclusion in early education during COVID-19.

Studies show that children begin absorbing messages about race, class, gender, ability+ in utero. And now thanks to COVID-19, we now have a bright and ugly light shining down on how structural oppression in this country works. The question is what can we as early childhood educators do about it?

The answer is everything. We lay the foundation for all of the learning our students will do in their lifetime. Everyday we unconsciously teach our students about values and biases. We need to be more conscious about the messages we are sending.

Some of us have already taken steps forward to understand how diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice+ effects our practice. In this workshop we will be taking it a step further. You will leave with concrete tools to continue this work in your home, community, and classrooms. Join Heidi Bailey, Director of Equity & Inclusion Initiative at The Family Cooperative, for this important conversation.
