Professional Development

Having healthy, productive conversations about race and children requires an understanding of how race affects our lives, our professions, and the people with whom we work. Through individualized professional development sessions, P.R.I.D.E. helps organizations further their knowledge of race, how it affects them, and how it affects young children.

Our professional development sessions are not simply rote lectures. They are interactive experiences that encourage participants to examine race in their lives and the lives of those they serve. Sessions often include historical lessons used to contextualize the present, helpful exercises that help adults grow as professionals, and hands-on activities that adults can use with children.

P.R.I.D.E. has hosted professional development sessions throughout the Pittsburgh region for groups both small and large. If you are interested in hiring P.R.I.D.E. create a professional development module for you and your staff, contact Dr. Aisha White at
