About 

This one-day conference will focus on methods to overcome obstacles to belonging based upon race, ethnicity, gender expressions, and other forms of identity differences in the context of early childhood education. The sessions will explore key concepts from the mind sciences, including implicit bias, racial anxiety, and stereotype threat, to help understand why identity differences can be challenging even for teachers with strongly held egalitarian values. Presenters will share research demonstrating both how these phenomena develop and their impact on everyday relationships, decisions, and behaviors in schools. The sessions will focus upon evidence-based solutions, which can help create classrooms that support the full academic and social development of each child. Through this conference, early childhood educators will learn how unconscious processes get in the way of genuine relationships and truly inclusive environments, and will walk away with tools and strategies to apply directly within the school context.
