Join us as we welcome back diversity and inclusivity presenter Rosetta Lee for an evening that promises to be thought-provoking and engaging.
Navigating Implicit and Unconscious Bias with Children
During this event, Rosetta will present on unconscious and implicit bias. Using neuroscience and case studies, she will highlight all of the small but meaningful shortcuts our brains take to make generalizations about others based on markers such as gender, race, age, physical ability and appearance. While simply being aware of these cognitive biases is a step in the right direction, Rosetta will offer concrete approaches to overcoming bias in our daily lives at home and at school.
Rosetta is both a teacher and professional outreach specialist at the Seattle Girls School. Since 2004 she has been a diversity speaker and trainer and has worked with over 200 K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. Rosetta has served for several years on the faculty of the NAIS Diversity Leadership Institute as well as on the NAIS diversity think tank cadre, Call to Action. She has been a frequent presenter at the NAIS People of Color Conference as well as a trainer/facilitator with the National Coalition Building Institute. A frequent collaborator with NPS, Rosetta presented “Diversity Through a Developmental Lens” to parents in February 2017, led the NPS Diversity Institutes in July 2017 and 2018.
