Conversation Project: Bias and Kids

How Do Our Prejudices Affect Our Children?

Most people agree that children need healthy, loving, supportive environments to thrive. But, as parents, family members, teachers, neighbors, and voters—how do our biases influence how we interact with the children in our lives and communities? And, how do those biases influence how children perceive themselves and what they will become? During our conversation led by Verónika Nuñez and Kyrié Kellett, we will reflect on how our biases—conscious and unconscious, related to gender, race, class, culture, and other traits—shape everything from our subtle interactions with the kids we care for to the way we make political decisions that influence children in our society.

This event will take place in Suite 200 and will be held in Spanish.
