Create Early Childhood Environments that Support Gender Diversity

Participants will learn the impact of strict gender roles and stereotypes on young children and adults who care for them, build a shared vocabulary to discuss gender as it exists in the world and in our own bodies, and be introduced to an alternative gender diversity framework that is big enough for us all. They will also learn a wide range of practical strategies they can use right away to create early learning environments that support young children of all genders.

Members of Gender Justice in Early Childhood will share highlights from their two recently published books. Julie Olsen-Edwards, co-author of the nationally renowned book, “Anti-Bias Education for Young Children and Ourselves”, will facilitate a panel featuring educators from Abundant Beginnings and Lourdes Rivas, non-binary kindergarten teacher, and children’s author, to share stories about what gender justice looks like in action with young children and their families.
