Owning Up: Creating a Culture of Dignity in your Community – a Culture interest event taking place on 2019-02-01 08:30:00 in Netherlands
#cdltowningup Social dynamics, conflicts, and bullying can influence every child’s ability to learn. But the reality is educators rarely get training to manage these dynamics. Even if they do, the training and resources can be simplistic or don’t appreciate the educator’s expertise of the young people they work with or the communities they serve. We have designed a dynamic new approach to teach these topics. Based on the second edition of the Owning Up Curriculum, it is also so much more. FEATURED SPEAKERS Rosalind Wiseman has had only one job since graduating from college—to help communities shift the way we think about children and teens’ emotional and physical wellbeing. As a teacher, thought leader, author, and media spokesperson on bullying, ethical leadership, the use of social media, and media literacy, she is in constant dialogue and collaboration with educators, parents, children, and teens. Rosalind is the founder of Cultures of Dignity and is the author of the flexible, dynamic curriculum Owning Up: Empowering Adolescents to Confront Social Cruelty, Bullying, and Injustice. She is also the author of Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World—the groundbreaking, best-selling book that was the basis for the movie Mean Girls. Charlie Kuhn is the Co-Founder & CEO of Cultures of Dignity. He is a social educator, facilitator, and education consultant. After leaving the financial sector, Charlie began his work with young people by editing “Masterminds & Wingmen”, a groundbreaking NYT best-selling book on boys’ social lives for adults, and “The Guide”, a book specifically written to high school-aged boys. He has presented at local and national venues including the Association for Middle Level Educators Annual Conference, Game Developers Conference, American School Counselors Association Annual Conference, The Library of Congress, and appeared on NPR Talk of the Nation. In addition to his work at CoD, he also served as an advisor to the Boys School of Denver and currently sits on the board of Attention Homes, a homeless shelter for teens and young adults that serves Boulder County, Colorado. He is a member of the Global Shapers Initiative of the World Economic Forum; a network developed and led by young people between the ages of 20 and 33 dedicated to creating an impact in communities.
