Rights of LGBTQ+ Children and Families
March 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Jen Francazio has eleven years’ experience teaching in classrooms ranging from infants to preschool. She has helped support and guide the development of anti-bias initiatives in two high-quality early childhood programs and provides professional development for other educators around issues of oppression, with a focus on gender and gender bias. Jen has presented nationally, for NAEYC, on the topic of allying with LGBTQ+ community within ECE – a session backed by the LGBT Interest Forum – and was a panelist at a recent Gender and Childhood event at Brown University.
In this interactive workshop, participants will explore the expanding vocabulary of gender, learn how gender and gender bias develop in early childhood, and how a Reggio-inspired curriculum can support children and families of all genders.
