“Our elementary school, the Boulder Community School of Integrated Studies, was fortunate enough to host the “Raising Culturally Competent Kids” workshop presented by Sage B. Hobbs. A large group of parents attended the event, and the feedback was incredibly positive and thankful following the event. Sage uses engaging connection activities, personal stories, research, and educational observations to create a safe environment for parents to engage and discuss topics of diversity and inclusion. The workshop was interactive; participants were presented with thought-provoking research, tools and insights for supporting their children with this critical topic, and opportunities to listen and learn from fellow parents and educators. Overall, the workshop raised awareness and built efficacy, as well as helping to build an inclusive school community.”
