Webinar: Know, then Grow: Becoming an Anti-Racist, Anti-Biased, Trauma-Informed Educator

For educators, families, and children alike, 2020 has been a time of deepening attention to racism and racial inequity in the United States. What does it mean to be an educator of young children at this moment? How can we prepare to talk to families and children about race, anti-racism, and the relationship to our classroom community? How does your knowledge about how racism manifests in all contexts, racial identity and that of your learners play into your reflective practice and teaching practices?

In this webinar, Dr. Iheoma U. Iruka, the Chief Research Innovation Officer and Director of the Center for Early Education Research and Evaluation (CEERE) at HighScope Educational Research Foundation, will explore the reality of racism, white privilege, and implicit bias in learning settings and the links to trauma, often not acknowledged, discussed and addressed. We’ll discuss recent events that have further exposed existing inequities amongst children. Join us as we discuss institutional and interpersonal racism and how we as educators can change our own practices in the classroom, programs, and schools to create a more equitable education system.
