What is the presentation about?
This session explores the ways we can create classrooms which are a nurturing, exciting place for Kaurs. By making a conscious effort to use lessons and language which enforces the power and strength inherent to a female Sikh, and resisting traditions which implicitly, or explicitly, favors the male perspective, we can make a difference for the next generation! Come bridge the gender gaps and ensure every Sikh child in the classroom knows, with great confidence, her true worth.
