A Message from Executive Director and founder, Susan Crawford, MSW, RSW
Welcome to Blend Education & Training Inc. where I have the privilege of sharing with you my passion for inspiring change. I strive to raise awareness by having open, honest conversations about sometimes difficult issues that are sensitive, but necessary to have. Over the past 9 years I have drawn on my personal, academic and professional expertise in the areas of diversity, inclusion, and parenting to support children, families and service providers.
I am frequently asked how and why I started this work, and the answer is simple. Growing up in a multiracial, multicultural family, the fabric of my identity was interwoven with Black American, Choctaw Indian, Eastern European and German influences. This not only gave me a firsthand glimpse of the rich experiences diverse families provide, but more so, a foundation on which to create my own unique identity. My journey of self discovery coupled with an interest in the dynamics of multiracial families, created biologically and through transracial adoption, has enabled me to advocate, raise awareness and support issues I believe in.
I encourage you to explore the site and become familiar with the programs, workshops and services we provide. Thank you for taking the time to visit the site.
If you have any questions or would like more information about programs or services, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. I look forward to hearing from you.
