The value of discussing the dynamic topic of race early with children is readily agreed upon, but HOW to do it effectively and empathetically is a resounding question. Transform your school culture by hearing from others on strategic ways to both recognize and invite conversations about race and diversity in your local community. Discover new social and emotional learning (SEL) resources to capitalize on those teachable moments that occur daily in our classrooms.

Come hear from our panel—an education expert, school leader and a world-class athlete—who will share their candid moments from their own experiences of discussing and learning about race as students.

This edLeader Panel will be of interest to teachers and school and district leaders of the kindergarten through middle school levels. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
