Add to my calendar

Please join us for a workshop on talking with your kids about race. It is an uncomfortable subject for many to dicuss, and frequently avoided. To help bridge the difficulty, we have invited Karen Fleshman (see bio below) to lead this important workshop.

Karen Fleshman, Esq. helps people and companies understand how conscious and unconscious biases work and develop an inclusive culture where all viewpoints are welcomed and valued.

She speaks, writes, and offers training and coaching. She is a sought after public speaker and publishes frequently on Huffington Post and LinkedIn. Prior to starting her consulting practice in the Bay Area, Karen was a founding team member of Year Up New York, where between 2007 and 2012 she led a fundraising team that fueled its growth from serving 27 students a year to 270 students a year. Previously, she served in the Bloomberg administration in the City of New York Department of Youth and Community Development in a variety of capacities, including Assistant General Counsel and Director of Internal Review.  She is a cofounder of Citizenship NYC, a city service that assisted 50,000 New Yorkers to apply for naturalization, and of Ladders for Leaders, a city service that connects low-income high school students to corporate internships and college. Karen began her professional career as an immigrant community organizer in Austin, Texas.

Sponsored by the Filipino American Center.

These cultural events are free and open to the public.

Inclusive programs have been designed for library users who want to gain a deeper understanding of autism spectrum disorders, sensory integration issues, developmental disabilities, learning differences, or other special needs. Everyone is welcome!
