DEIBJ stands for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Justice. It is the way we work towards a program and society that values all voices and includes all people. Though there are some who believe that young children should not learn about DEIBJ because they are too young and aren’t born with prejudices, we know from research that children as young as six months old will show a preference for faces of their own racial group– the beginnings of “in-group/out group” designation. However, that effect is reduced when the infants grow up in diverse neighborhoods.
