Are your kids hearing racially or culturally-charged comments on the news? Are you wondering how to empower them to be culturally competent through your own modeling and conversation? In this paradigm-shifting talk, Dr. Caprice Hollins unpacks the ways we’ve been socialized to think about differences, helps us engage in courageous conversations with one another and our children, and develop new ways of being.

Participants will increase their understanding of equity vs equality, privilege, implicit bias, and learn to effectively engage our children and work together to dismantle institutional racism. Dr.

Hollins provides the framework for developing cultural competence, for a community where everyone benefits through inclusivity and the honoring of differences.
