GroundSpark’s president and senior producer Debra Chasnoff will be the kickoff speaker at the International Bullying Prevention Association’s upcoming conference in San Diego, Inclusion Through Kindness and Community: One-day summit supporting our LGBTQ youth.
Debra’s talk, “Culture Change Strategies for Addressing Bias” will focus on how educators can find ways to address the bias issues which have become much more charged for students in today’s political climate.
She’ll be focusing on how we can open up critical discussions about race, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity, sexism, ableism, religion and more to protect our students and encourage everyone to be strong allies.
In an interactive session, Debra will use excerpts from our Respect for All documentaries to model strategies educators can use in their schools.
“Debra Chasnoff was the first person we thought of to kick off the event,” says IBPA executive director Lynn Lonsway.” Her message to confront prejudice, discrimination, and bias is powerful and will be more timely and critical than ever to our attendees.”
Lonsway says the conference will sell out soon, so if you are an educator in the area, register now.
Debra is also available to share her presentation at other conferences. Visit our website to learn more.
