Description: This webinar will focus on how to express yourself in a way that is authentic and builds relationships. You will explore your own racial and cultural biases while becoming more confident in discussing race with school-aged and teenage youth. Teachers will leave with a few lesson plans to incorporate within your classroom discussions on race. This will help you create an open and innovative learning environment grounded in equitable practices.
