Birth of BrillianceChallenging Us to Create Racial Equity in Early Childhood 
Thursday, February 25th, 8:30am-4:45pm PST
Recorded sessions available with paid registration
ASL services available, please inform of need prior to 2.19.21

All Children are born with BRILLIANCEwhich according to Webster's Dictionary means:
intense brightness of light; vividness of color; & exceptional talent or intelligence.  

Imagine a world where every child's brilliance is acknowledged and nurtured from birth.  
Racial inequity flies in the face of this brilliance and it is our responsibility to rewrite the narrative.   

The Birth of Brilliance Conference was conceived to raise the collective consciousness around the effects of racial disparities and implicit bias in mental health, social services, developmental services, early childhood education, and medical care. This one-day virtual conference will bring together critical voices in order to begin to have long-overdue courageous conversations.  Together we will begin to create brave spaces to challenge the norm and honor the brilliance of every child.  In our inaugural year, our focus is on challenging us to create racial equity in early childhood through intentional education, dialogue and collective mobilization. 

Join us at our inaugural event where the focus will be on challenging us to create racial equity in early childhood.
