Douglas County Healthy Youth Coalition: How to Have Hard Conversations & Create Inclusive Communities with Rosalind Wiseman
May 5, 2021
This presentation will give parents increased knowledge and skills to support Douglas County Healthy Youth Coalition’s efforts to promote diversity and equity in its community.
We will cover the following topics:
- How to have hard conversations about various forms of discrimination where various community constituents feel heard and acknowledged
- How to support anti-discrimination and inclusivity in all expressions of sexual orientation
- How to facilitate conversations by defining the difference between a curious question that brings people of different experiences and opinions together rather than a question that reinforces bias and alienation between individuals in our community
- How to develop parents’ and other trusted adults’ skills to contribute to a culture of dignity in schools and in the community
All of these content areas will be tied together to support the emotional, mental, and physical health of young people and others within our vulnerable communities.
