Equity Talks

Equity Talks Video Series

First Steps Kent seeks to dismantle structural racism and improve the outcomes for people of color. This video series provides tools to guide future educators and parents when having discussions about race and bias.

By offering this to higher education, we can bring lasting change. When we are intentional and willing to be a part of difficult conversations, we can imagine a more inclusive anti-racist, and anti-bias future.

The Equity Talks videos are a snapshot in time that include language and perspectives that may have evolved. The opinions expressed and identity preferences of the speakers interviewed are individual and nuanced; they do not represent a blanket approach. Listen for these moments and acknowledge them. As always equity is about ongoing conversation and education.

Our Changing Families

Family constructs look different than they used to. Use this video to help talk about different types of families and the way it affects your identity.
