Watch now: Conversation Starters – Let’s Talk about Differences

Diversity, equity, and inclusion have been core values of Girl Scouts since its founding in 1912. As we continue empowering youth to make the world a better place, we are excited to have brought together experts from across Colorado to have important conversations about difference, race, and racism. Experts from Girl Scouts of Colorado, Children’s Hospital Colorado, and Colorado Mountain College came together in July and August 2020 to answer questions about these important topics through one conversation for parents and caregivers, and one conversation for children. Anne Trujillo from Denver7 moderated each conversation.

You can now watch both conversations on Denver7 through your Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, or others streaming device. You can also watch on the Denver7 and Girl Scouts of Colorado YouTube channels.

Special thanks to our experts:

  1. Lindsay Standish, Chief Outdoor Program Officer, Girl Scouts of Colorado

  2. Robert Franklin, II,  Diversity, Health Equity & Inclusion Program Manager, Children’s Hospital Colorado

  3. Dr. Brandi Freeman, Pediatrics, Children’s Hospital Colorado

  4. Faridhe Rodriguez, Director, El Busesito Preschool, Valley Settlement Project & Colorado Mountain College student (parent & caregiver conversation only)

  5. Rob Nesby, Preschool teacher, Early Learning Center in Aspen, CO & Colorado Mountain College student (child conversation only)

As you and your children continue learning about topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we invite you to explore our Diverse. Inclusive. Together. program, adapted from our Girl Scout sisters in Minneapolis and explore all the resources provided on our website.
