Want to talk with your children about diversity and inclusion yet not sure where to start?
Here are some ideas to help:
- Visit your local library and pick up books featuring children that are different than your children
- Follow the cultural celebrations each month (black history, women’s history, etc.) and ASK your children about the topics.
- Take your children to an event that celebrates a different culture and talk about their experiences.
- Do your homework. Spend some time getting up to speed listening to Real Talk episodes of the Inclusion School podcast.
- Ask your children what differences they notice in people (visible and non-apparent).
- Meet your children where they are at. Listen to learn from them. Stay curious and suspend judgment.
- Check out the Inclusion School resources page for recommended books lists, organizations that support diversity and inclusion, and other ideas.
- Follow Inclusion School on Pinterest to get the latest book recommendations, craft ideas, and blogs featuring diversity and inclusion experts.
