Kalise Wornum, K-12 METCO Director and WHS Liaison will be conducting a workshop on
“Difficult Conversations: Talking about Race and Racism with Children and Colleagues”.
This talk is designed to help participants develop a better understanding of ways to address and respond to issues of race and racism on a personal and professional level. Participants will consider the experiences of students and families from ethnically or racially diverse backgrounds in predominantly white schools, and will examine both the barriers to/challenges of talking about race/racism/ethnicity and strategies for engaging in productive discussions.
Members of the Wellesley Public School community are invited to attend. Bring a friend and be part of this important conversation.Thursday, January 14 Day 5
