Mixed-Ethnicity Adoptive Families Workshop

Mixed-Ethnicity Adoptive Families Workshop

Often called transracial or multiracial adoption, nearly half of adopted kindergarten students are being cared for by adoptive parents of a different ethnicity. This workshop, which can also be a keynote address, helps parents of multiethnic families develop a proactive, empowering strategy and context for your family.

Based on his award-winning book, A Wealth of Family: An Adopted Son's International Quest for Heritage, Reunion and Enrichment, Thomas is able to speak to your adoption or foster care fundraiser audience, book club, company, professional organization, religious group or other entity about leadership, diversity and inclusion.

His second book, 26.2 Ways to Just Do It Now: Keys for Sustainable Happiness and Success, will launch in Fall 2020. That book includes a compelling chapter on the topic of "Diversity and Inclusion to Spark Creativity for High Performance."

Workshop Duration and Price

This workshop is typically scheduled for two to four hours.
Price for the workshop is a one-time, flat fee of $997.

[Delivered In-Person or by Zoom]
