From Hurt to Healing
July 23 Presentation
This conversation is the first installment in a series designed to support our WBSD parents in preparing students for their return to school. The series is titled, From Hurt to Healing: Growing our Emotional Understanding About the World Around Us. Topics in this series include: talking to children and teens about race, Covid-19 and student mental health, and parent wellness.
The WBSD DEI Team hosted a conversation on July 23 as we continue the conversation and discuss ways to talk about race and anti-racism at home. The panelists will include WBSD Superintendent, Dr. Gerald Hill, and WBSD Board President, Stacy Brickman, who will speak to equity work within the district. In addition, Kwame Simmons, WBSD parent and educator, and Dr. Jay Marks, Diversity and Equity Consultant from Oakland Schools, will share their expertise on speaking to children about race.
