New Speaker Series Welcomes Dr. Bryan

On Wednesday evening, psychologist and author Jennifer Bryan, Ph.D,  addressed gender, sexual identity, and helping children navigate gender stereotypes as the first guest in Derby Academy’s new Speaker Series, a yearlong program designed to bring educational leaders and innovators to the South Shore.
Speaking with an audience in the Healey Family Center for Innovation, Dr. Bryan discussed ways to keep pace with the social changes in our culture and classrooms, and how students, families, and schools can work together in understanding these powerful components of development in Pre-K-12 children and adolescents.
On Thursday morning, Dr. Bryan led a private, illuminating workshop exclusively for Derby parents to discuss individual and collective experiences, and answer questions about how to approach the topics of gender and sexuality with compassion and understanding.
