In this highly collaborative session, inclusive leadership speaker and trainer Julie Kratz will share stories, ideas, and research from her new children’s book, Little Allies. We’ll discuss the importance and impact of having conversations about diversity, inclusion, and allyship earlier with the children in our lives. Julie wrote this book in response to difficult conversations about racism at home with her own daughters. Little Allies and this session are meant to be a resource to help parents and people leaders everywhere guide little ones along this journey towards allyship.
Teachers and educators should join this workshop because they’ll gain tools and resources to have more effective conversations about diversity, increase inclusive behaviour across communities, plus the chance to purchase Little Allies at a discounted bulk purchase rate!
