Claire Leunissen

I lead conversations on diversity, inclusion, and the value of human differences.


This course is for any family that wants to raise children that value diversity, equity, and inclusion. “Becoming a More Inclusive Family” draws on Anthropological theory and Liberating Structures to teach a series of simple and useful tools for parents push their comfort zones. From young families to experienced ones, participants will be challenged to learn about racism and its consequences, how our identities influence our lens, how to talk about human differences with children of all ages, and how to live a life that embodies diversity and inclusion.


We complement our Anthropological approach with the principles of Cultural Humility. Cultural Humility: to humbly reflect on one’s own personal and systemic biases, and to recognize oneself as a learner when it comes to understanding an other’s experience. Together, we can be open to learning, accepting and respecting human differences.
