Celebrating diversity is central to all Head Start programs — It’s written in the DNA, as provided by the Improving School Readiness for Head Start Act of 2007. Serving families with different backgrounds, circumstances, and challenges is a stated description of the families that are eligible for Head Start services. Understanding the needs and opportunities this mandate creates is critical for any successful program. In this session, we’ll explore what that means for families and staff.

Respecting and leveraging diversity with intentionality as part of organizational culture is a way to foster positive business and personal relationships. Effectively doing so is seen as a reflection of organizational values to some. To others it is seen as a practical necessity for high performing teams and financial success for the organization. This session discusses the benefits of creating and maintaining a program environment where everyone can feel appreciated for their authentic selves and individual, professional contributions. This helps people to understand each other so that they can work together effectually.

This dynamic 2-hour session is designed for all HS/EHS staff and families. Participants will explore: The organizational process towards fostering an environment where people with profound differences thrive; the tenets of inclusive leadership; and the value-driven philosophy of diversity and inclusion. Staff will better understand how to relate to families and each other. Families will better understand the values promoted by your program. Program leadership will better understand how to support PFCE diversity and inclusion outcomes. This is a session for everyone in your organization.

Don’t miss this first time offering by T/TAS at WKU on this timely topic that is central to the mission of Head Start.
