The Way Forward Leader Lunch Break: Thea DeRosa Cerra
June 1 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm
The Way Forward Leader Lunch Breaks are a series of virtual (via Zoom) discussion and workshops on topics to help you move forward in our new and uncertain world.
Thea DeRosa Cerra (CBB 2020), Cleveland Kids’ Book Bank
Representation matters: children’s edition
Children’s books have historically lacked representation. Thea will share why it is important for children to see characters that are like them in books and how the Book Bank is helping to elevate local authors who have written books that include diverse characters. She will also review the Books Like Me campaign and share ongoing ways to support this work.
Leaders are needed now more than ever before, please help us to build our leadership today and for the future. The Way Forward Leader Lunch Breaks are offered for free but donations to support continued CLC programming are appreciated!
