Identity, Difference and Allyship event - Feb 27th at BCD

On February 27th from 6:00pm - 7:30pm, BCD's Coordinator of Equity & Inclusion, Randi Reinhold will lead a thoughtful conversation on Identity, Difference and Allyship and how we can raise our awareness and challenge stereotypes through reflection and conversation. 

Research shows that throughout early childhood, children become aware of cultural identities such as gender, race, ethnicity and ability. 
They also begin to absorb society’s messages about these forms of identity, which often subtly reinforce stereotypes and bias. How can parents work to actively counter these pervasive messages in order to foster children’s anti-bias development? The goal of this workshop is to provide parents and caregivers with language and proactive strategies for addressing children’s questions and misconceptions around difference and modeling how to be an ally through action and dialog. Participants will be asked to engage in thoughtful reflection and discussion around personal identity.
 

Join us - Free and open to the public. RSVP here.
