The Double Whammy: The Disproportionate Impact of Systemic Racism and COVID on Children of Color

April 30 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

This lecture qualifies for 1.5 hours of credit toward the annual Gillings School inclusive excellence training requirement for faculty and staff.

The series aims to increase awareness about the impact of disparities that contribute to children’s ability to keep pace, which have broad dire effects on the neurodevelopmental trajectories of children growing in disadvantaged households and communities. The seminar will further inform science-based policy measures that compel action within our local and state governments to drive initiatives that combat disparities impacting early childhood learning and well-being.
