Join us for professional development to deepen your understanding of how to cultivate anti-bias and anti-racist practices in classrooms and schools. Learn how to facilitate rich, inclusive discussions with your students to honor their lived experiences and ensure each child grows up literate in our educational system. These nationally known speakers will challenge your thinking, inspire you and your students to take action, and equip you with the literature, language, and tools so you can make a difference in your school, community, and the world.

Participate in-person at Lesley University (limited seating available) or virtually. Sessions will be recorded. Registration for the series includes professional texts and 30-day access to recordings.
