Lynne Azarchi, executive director and founder of the Kidsbridge Tolerance Center in Ewing, believes that before we teach others about tolerance, diversity appreciation, respect, empathy and other related issues, we must first educate ourselves. That is why Kidsbridge is offering new Lunch & Learn webinar sessions for business employees.
The sessions are all based on using the lens of empathy for better tackling bullying, bias and racism. The webinars offer the following focus topics:
The sessions last one hour, conclude with a question and answer segment, and can be offered at any designated time.
According to Lenora Green, executive director, Center for Advocacy and Philanthropy at Educational Testing Service (ETS), “Through the Kidsbridge presentation, not only did our employees learn how to help their children more with bullying prevention, but in a fun and interactive format, they learned how to make our workplace more inclusive and welcome for everyone.”
Kidsbridge, a nonprofit organization founded in 1996, has educated more than 21,000 youth and educators. As part of its mission statement, the organization seeks to create “empathetic individuals and caring citizens who live their lives without prejudice or discrimination, and who are positive advocates for themselves and others.”
The Kidsbridge Tolerance Center is the only youth-focused tolerance center in the United States.
