 Registration required at or call 518-371-8622. Intended audience adults. Have you ever wondered how to engage kids in age-appropriate discussion about race and identity? Or, have you grappled with how to answer their questions about skin color, stereotypes, and the experiences of different races in the USA? If so, please join us for a workshop on Tues., 1/29/19 from 6-7:30 pm, led by Dr. Kristie A. Ford, Professor of Sociology and founder of the Intergroup Relations Program at Skidmore College.

About Dr. Ford: Dr. Kristie A. Ford is professor of Sociology and the Director of the Center for Leadership, Teaching, and Learning at Skidmore College. She received her B.A. in Sociology from Amherst College and her M.A. and PhD in Sociology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Her research and teaching interests include race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and social justice education.

The SIS Parent Association, together with Lisa Brown, Head of School, formed a committee to focus intentionally on issues of race, diversity, children, and education. The committee believes that a focus on these issues is especially important given the demographic makeup of Saratoga County.
