As I end my time here at the POCC Conference, I have to feature another role model for our girls who happens to be at SGS every day, Rosetta Lee. After receiving her B.A. in Biology from Harvard University, Rosetta worked as a Residence Director, Instructor, and Advisor at the Exploration Summer Program, as well as spending eight years as a Stage Manager with Actor's Equity Association. She joined SGS in its very first year and has expanded upon her primary areas of research to include equity and social justice, single-sex education, ethics education, neurobiology, and how we learn. Rosetta currently serves as a speaker, trainer, and consultant throughout the nation.
At this POCC, she served as a facilitator for the Asian/Asian American Affinity Group and presented workshops that included a "Train the Trainer" session described by one of the conference bloggers:
Rosetta Eun Ryong Lee Trains the Trainers
Rosetta taps into her own crafted facilitation skills as she trains a large group of participants on how to facilitate conversations about race. She reminds us that “authentic friendships” across race implies that regular discussions occur around race; otherwise, she questions how authentic these relationships really are.
A few great moments:
* Privilege is like fish seeing the water.
* Be mindful of “Leadership Oppression.”
* It’s not about blame, and it’s not about personal guilt.
