An Evening with Rosetta Lee

An Evening with Rosetta Lee

Join NPS and the School's Diversity and Community Committee as we welcome back diversity and inclusion presenter Rosetta Lee for an evening that promises to be thought-provoking and engaging.

Parents and Children: Navigating Complex Issues Together

Young people bear witness to challenging events in the media and in our local communities. They are often trying to process thoughts, feelings, and reactions without our explicit help and guidance – thereby increasing their confusion and anxiety. We adults have a natural instinct to protect our children from harsh realities and yet must prepare them to navigate this complex world. Is it possible to do both?

  • How can you talk about identity, difference, and justice in age appropriate ways?
  • How do you reinforce your family's values while instilling respect for other perspectives?
  • How do you coach children toward authentic and respectful dialogue across difference?

  • Our faculty have enjoyed multiple workshops with Rosetta, most recently the week-long NPS Diversity Institute, and were impressed by her warmth, humor, and depth of knowledge and understanding.

    During this event, Rosetta will discuss her research and experiences as well as offer practical tips for answering those big questions when our children ask them.
