The Inclusive Leader

Brought To You By The Children's School

Big picture

After a successful year of remarkable connections, brave conversations, and breakthroughs with our "Inclusive Leader Book Club" members, we are excited to continue the series once a month on Sundays at The Children's School.

"Waking Up White" Meeting

Sunday, Feb. 24th, 2-4pm

345 10th Street Northeast

Atlanta, GA

The next book we will read is "Waking Up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race" by Debby Irving.

From "For twenty-five years, Debby Irving sensed inexplicable racial tensions in her personal and professional relationships. As a colleague and neighbor, she worried about offending people she dearly wanted to befriend. As an arts administrator, she didn't understand why her diversity efforts lacked traction. As a teacher, she found her best efforts to reach out to students and families of color left her wondering what she was missing. Then, in 2009, one "aha!" moment launched an adventure of discovery and insight that drastically shifted her worldview and upended her life plan. In Waking Up White, Irving tells her often cringe-worthy story with such openness that readers will turn every page rooting for her-and ultimately for all of us."

Invite friends! The club is open to everyone, even those not affiliated with TCS.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.
