All Children are born with BRILLIANCE, which according to Webster's Dictionary means: intense brightness of light; vividness of color; & exceptional talent or intelligence.
Imagine a world where every child's brilliance is acknowledged and nurtured from birth.
Racial inequity flies in the face of brilliance and it is our responsibility to rewrite the narrative and break down the barriers that limit our children's potential.
The Birth of Brilliance Conference was conceived to raise the collective consciousness around the effects of racial disparities and implicit bias in mental health, social services, developmental services, early childhood education, and medical care. For the last two years, this virtual conference has brought together critical voices in order to have long-overdue courageous conversations. Together we've created brave space to challenge the norm and honor the brilliance of every child.
Join us at our 3rd annual event where the focus is Be the Change - challenging us to find our own calls to action to move us in the direction of the way things should be.
