Girls Leadership will share more about how we help professionals examine their own relationship with social-emotional skills to effectively model strategies for youth, engage in culturally responsive mindsets and practices, and understand trauma/trauma responses to create a healing-centered environment. Who doesn’t need that right now?

This one-hour webinar will guide you through the following questions: 

  • What does healing-centered engagement look like as we return to the classroom?
  • What is the relationship between social-emotional learning, leadership, and bias? How does that relationship impact girls of color?
  • What is Girls Leadership’s response to our latest research on girls of color and leadership?



“This was extremely thought-provoking and has really made me think about how I will interact with black and latinx girls in the future. The workshop also helped me understand different types of bias and to be aware of my own blindspots.”

“The push has been all around trauma informed care (it is a buzzword). To think about extending it and considering healing-centered is eye opening.”
