Cross-Racial/Cultural Awareness for Leaders:
The Beauty in Understanding Differences
You are leaders working to serve and reach homeschoolers across culture and race.
There are often barriers, both recognized and unconscious, that can prevent even the best leaders from relating effectively and building bridges that support diversity.
Mom’s Safe Space interactive workshops are designed to help you uncover unconscious bias, understand the role of personalities, and remove stereotypes through authentic interactions and insights.
Co-Founders Heather Frommack and LaNissir James will come alongside you as they share insights and practical tools taken from both eye-opening research and real experience. They can’t wait to meet you and walk this journey towards greater unity and effectiveness together!
