Greater New Haven Region Chapter
In this virtual workshop, presenters will share examples from their reflective work focused on using the anti-bias goals as a lens for everyday interactions and teaching practices. Participants will think together about ways to introduce children to the diverse world in which they live in and ways to engage adults in these important conversations.

**The New Haven Chapter has made a conscious decision to keep pricing low because we want to acknowledge how hard early childhood professionals work and give you the best value for your hard earned money.
We also want to make this exciting and extraordinary opportunity available to as many people as possible. A silver lining of the pandemic is that we can offer this unique virtual program at so little cost to you.
There’s nothing like hearing from current classroom teachers, who are also nationally recognized as leaders in our field, about their work around Diversity Equity Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) issues that are so relevant to our world today.
Prepare to be energized, inspired, and challenged to expand your teaching practices!
