Cindy Stephens, Cristina Espinoza, Deborah Owens
English: Tuesday, February 7th, 6:00PM - 8:00PM

Join our Anti-Bias & Anti-Racism series with PEACH by attending our third webinar, “Applying Anti-Racist Strategies in Early Learning Environments and Family Engagement.” In this webinar, we will discuss more about both racism & anti-racism, from the implicit and subconscious aspects to how we can actively be anti-racist educators.

What can you expect to learn in this webinar?

  • Define and discuss the impact of racism, particularly at varying levels (internalized, interpersonal, institutional, structural) and as it relates to your work as an early educator and how you interact with children and families
  • Learn what an anti-racist approach is and how to apply it to your early learning settings.
