Learning to Code!

Learning to Code!

Adults can learn to Code with TKP (Teaching Kids Programming) Courseware! In this interactive workshop, absolute beginner programmers (adults) can try out the free lessons from the non-profit TKP (www.teachingkidsprogramming.org). TKP has worked with teachers and kids world-wide for over 11 years. Although, the courseware is designed to introduce kids ages 10 and up to core computation concepts via Logo-style (turtle) programming, we have found that it's a fun way for adult 'non-programmers' to try out coding in a safe, fun format.

In this group format, the visiting teachers will lead small groups to work together to have fun and experience coding.

Paid Family and Medical Leave Town Hall
Jan

Paid Family and Medical Leave Town Hall

Women make up nearly half of Minnesota’s labor force (48 percent) and more than one-quarter of its business owners (27 percent).  However only 13% of Minnesota workers have access to paid family and medical leave. That means women are forced to face impossible choices when new children are born or adopted and when serious personal or family health needs inevitably arise.  

As workers struggle to balance caregiving with their job responsibilities, many end up facing economic hardship. Caregiving demands may even lead to effects felt across years or a lifetime due to lost jobs, missed raises, and reduced Social Security benefits. Employers, especially small rural ones, are also struggling to attract and retain good workers in competition with larger metro area employers that can afford to offer such benefits. Our current system has failed and is costly to workers, their families, businesses, and our economy. It’s time to modernize our workplace standards and benefits.

At this townhall, we'll hear from experts/Moms/business owners and advocates about ways to address this and policy solutions that would provide paid family leave to all Minnesotans. 

Speakers:

Stephanie Hogansen, from the Children's Defense Fund MN

Margi Scott, from Take12

Alex West Steinman from The Coven

The Woke Coach

Allyship is not an identity—it is a lifelong process of building relationships based on trust, consistency, and accountability with marginalized individuals and/or groups of people. Allyship is not self-defined—our work and our efforts must be recognized by the people we seek to ally ourselves with."—from The Anti-Oppression Network  

Are you a true ally? Are you sure? How do you know? Join Seena Hodges (The Woke Coach) for an engaging, intimate interaction about allyship, privilege and responsibility. During this workshop we will unpack the true meaning of allyship, consider ways that we can be better humans, and make personal plans for executing the work that true allyship requires.
