PEACH‘s Anti-Racism & Equity Working Group and QSLA have partnered to launch this new series “Using Anti-Bias & Anti-Racist Practices to Support Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging for BIPOC* Families in ECE.” The series, running from August 2022 – May 2023, will focus on creating conversation spaces with your early learning programs to better center anti-bias and anti-racist practices in your work with children and families, particularly in support of marginalized families of color.
As our society grapples with racism, diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging and the violence this often generates, we find ourselves at a pivotal point. Partner with us to co-develop the knowledge and expertise needed to support children and families of color in our programs with equity and justice at the forefront.
How are we approaching this?
- Publishing 4 key articles focused on these topics that provide research-informed tips and best practices that you can use to support the implementation of anti-biased and anti-racist practices in your early learning program.
- Offering 4 webinars that address these topics through engaging content, discussions, and interactive activities that support your professional and personal growth.
- Hosting 2 Communities of Practice where you will have a chance to discuss successes, challenges, best practices, and share reflections with other early educators tackling these same important topics.
All sessions are individual and there is no requirement to attend them in any order. We look forward to sharing enriching conversations with you in these engaging webinars and Communities of Practice!
*BIPOC is an acronym which stands for Black, Indigenous, People of Color.
