Don’t wait 10 years to have Courageous Conversations and Build Life-long Friendships Yesterday @thefitlitteacher and I spoke with about 30 Upper School girls at Bryn Mawr about the importance of being oneself at all times and creating allies from all backgrounds in our workshop called “Alumnae for Equity & Empowerment: Courageous Conversations about Allyship.” The girls were so self-reflexive but they told us to come back because they had so much fun telling us their stories (their joys, privileges, and challenges). It was also wonderful speaking with faculty about students’ sentiments and learning about their experiences as well! We tried our best to create a safe space for discussion of mistakes made, successes, and steps that we can make to move forward.
