About this Event
Join us as we recognize and honor Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month with the next installment of the REAL Conversations series. Returning to her alma mater, Dr. Rosa L. Rivera-McCutchen '96, '97W (MS) will discuss concepts from her recently published book, Radical Care: Leading for Justice in Urban Schools. Through her research and practice, Rivera-McCutchen encourages leadership through radical care, a term she developed consisting of five components: adopting an antiracist stance, cultivating authentic relationships, believing in students’ and teachers’ capacity for excellence, leveraging power strategically, and embracing a spirit of radical hope. Calling for today’s education leaders to thoughtfully challenge existing structures that reproduce inequality, Radical Care offers a much-needed framework that will guide leadership practice with a sense of urgency and a spirit of hope.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session moderated by Dr. Jessica Guzman-Rea ’10W (EdD), assistant dean for Diversity, director of the Paul J. Burgett Intercultural Center, chair of the College Diversity Roundtable, and Latinx Alumni Network volunteer.
This event is part of the University of Rochester monthly lecture and discussion series, REAL–Rochester's Equity & Access Leadership–Conversations. These virtual programs focus on authentic discussions featuring brave and candid dialogues around equity, measurable action, and meaningful change.
