Early Childhood Anti-Bias Training Workshop
The Early Childhood Initiative of the Anti-Defamation League provides anti-bias training and resources for the early childhood community. The goal of the initiative is to assist caregivers, educators and families in creating and sustaining bias-free early childhood programs and homes that encourage children to appreciate diversity at an age when the seeds of prejudice can begin to take root.
To achieve this goal, Tabari Colman, Education Director for the
Anti-Defamation League, will deliver a workshop to increase participants’ ability to:
- Recognize, acknowledge and confront prejudice and discriminatory behavior in oneself and others;
- Examine policies, practices and resources for bias and inequities;
- Create and sustain respectful, inclusive environments;
- Develop children’s capacity to understand and respect themselves and others, to recognize inclusion and exclusion, and to play, live and learn together.
Small and large group discussion, role play, videos, case studies and goal setting increase participants’ understanding of bias and discrimination and provide ways to effectively interrupt acts of bigotry will be presented.
