“It Starts at Home: Changing the World One Family at a Time,” will provide the context for our engagement. Dr. Chatelain will talk to the group about where and how students are receiving messages—explicit and implicit—about race, gender, social class, sexuality, ability, and religion. In thinking about these messages, Dr. Chatelain will help the group understand the tremendous power they have in shaping not only how their students see the world, but also about their ability to demonstrate courage, integrity, and care for others who are different than them. The presentation will also talk about addressing the anxiety and fear we all feel when dealing with difficult topics in our families and communities. After the presentation, Dr. Chatelain will answer questions from participants about specific situations, as well as broader inquiries into how to talk to young people about diversity, values, and community.
Dr. Chatelain offers keynote lectures, moderates panels, and presents workshops around the world. If you are interested in inviting Dr. Chatelain to your campus or community, consult this calendar first to determine her availability. She hopes to see you at her next event.
