Experience Institute

I had the great pleasure to meet Victor Saad, founder of the wonderfully inspiring Exeperience Institute yesterday. I am so lucky that my work (CreativeMornings) consistently reminds me of the many wonderful humans out there, who are heart-forward, generous, and believe in an optimistic, creative, community driven future. Just like Victor. You can hear more of his story, and especially the Leap Year Project, here.

Dear White Parents

Dear White Parents offers an intimate view of enlightening, sometimes uncomfortable, family discussions focused on parents helping their children understand racism through current events and sharing their own stories about how they first became aware of racism.

The website Dear White Parents is a remarkable resource to help us raise an anti-racist generation. Have a look at the curated library of age-driven resources and discussion guides, as well as anti-racism workshops and discussions. I appreciate the work that went into this.
