Starting the Conversation: How to Discuss Race with Your Children

Do you want to talk to your child about race but aren’t sure where or how to begin? Starting the Conversation: How to Discuss Race With Your Children is a free webinar presented by Denise LaRosa, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at The Ellis School, that addresses how parents can start having these important discussions at home. An educator, parent to two daughters, and Ph.D. candidate in Language, Literacy, and Culture at University of Pittsburgh’s School of Education, Denise speaks to how parents can lead with compassion and develop a sense of empathy in their children as they discuss important issues around identity, race, and equity.
