Discovery Museum Speaker Series Event: How To Have Brave Conversations that Build Empathetic Kids

Wednesday, March 6, 2024, 7pm – 8pm

Speaker: Valora Washington, Ph.D., CEO & President, The CAYL Institute; former Vice President, W.K. Kellogg Foundation

Location: Live, via Zoom webinar

Free and open to the public.  Please register with the link below.

In her role as Chief Executive Officer and President of The CAYL Institute, Dr. Valora Washington is at the epicenter of current thinking about the biggest issues facing kids and families. She joins us to speak about one that is front of mind: Helping adults have the brave conversations that develop kids’ sense of empathy over judgment, and respect the complexity of the world we live in. Dr. Washington will help us understand why keeping children “in a bubble” is not a reasonable option in today’s world, and how choosing to be a powerful parent (or caregiver, or grandparent, or teacher) is one of the greatest gifts we can give the children in our lives.
