Roxanne Felix-Mah has twenty years of experience working in equity, inclusion and anti-racism in the fields of public health and mental health services, community development, research, and immigrant services. She has also worked across many sectors – working for civic, provincial and federal government as well as research organizations and various non-profits.
These diverse experiences serve as a backdrop for her work as managing partner of a consulting company, Equity in Action. She is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor with the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta and has worked with them for 18 years. She is excited to present with Adoption Options, as her family was also created through adoption.
This very special Learning Series session will offer foundational information on race and culture, racism (what is it, how to spot it, and how to respond to it), as well as an examination of the impacts on children in transracial families.
The workshop will orient around the child-centered responsibilities of transracial parenthood and the unique joys and challenges that go hand in hand with this journey. Participants will learn tools to support with navigating the complexities of transracial adoption in a safe and open learning environment.
For all families considering or parenting in a transracial or multicultural adoption, this workshop should not be missed!
