Listening to Young People Today
With Guest Speaker Rosalind Wiseman

Rosalind Wiseman, educator and bestselling author of Queen Bees & Wannabes, the basis for the movieMean Girls, will be at the Palm Theatre to talk about the most important issues facing young people today. On Thursday, May 9th, at 6:00pm, at the Michael D. Palm Theatre, Rosalind and Telluride youth will be hosting a community dialogue about growing up in our community.

Young people are the experts of their own lives and the specific communities they live in, so join Rosalind as she speaks on these issues and then facilitates a panel of young people sharing their experiences.  Among the topics that Rosalind and the youth will cover include:

  • Social media
  • Relationships with adults
  • Relationships with peers
  • Anxiety & pressure
  • School discipline

 Rosalind Wiseman has had only one job since graduating from college—to help communities shift the way we think about children and teens’ emotional and physical wellbeing.  As a teacher, thought leader, author, and media spokesperson on teen culture, bullying, ethical leadership, the use of social media, and media literacy, she is in constant collaboration with educators, parents, children, and teens.

She is the author of the New York Times’ bestsellers, Queen Bees & Wannabes, which was turned into the movie and musical Mean Girls, Masterminds & Wingmen: Helping Our Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World, which addresses the social lives of boys and was awarded Best Parenting Book by Books for a Better Life in 2014. In addition, she wrote a book for high school boys with high school boys called, The Guide: Managing Jerks, Recruiting Wingmen, and Attracting Who You Want.

Rosalind is the founder of Cultures of Dignity, the author of the curriculum Owning Up: Empowering Adolescents to Confront Social Cruelty, Bullying, and Injustice, a comprehensive social emotional learning curriculum that she wrote in collaboration with middle and high school students and the Association of Middle Level Educators.

She writes a column for the Anti-Defamation League called Rosalind’s Classroom Conversations and publishes in TIME, CNN, and the Washington Post among others and is a frequent guest on the Today Show, CNN, Good Morning America and National Public Radio.

She is a native of Washington DC and spent most of her life there, she now lives in Boulder -Colorado with her husband and fifteen and seventeen-year-old sons.

Rosalind encourages youth, parents, teachers, and interested community members to attend to gain insight into what it means to be a young person growing up in Telluride today. 

Doors open at 5:30pm, and the event starts at 6:00pm.  From 7:30 to 8:00 pm Rosalind will be hosting a book signing and will be available to meet attendees in the Palm Lobby.  Refreshments and food will be served at that time. 


Community Meal and Conversation
With Political Consultant Lisa Duran

In our time together we will learn to explore and better understand:

  • The contexts in which we find ourselves and our communities.
  • How inequalities (income inequality, lack of access to safe and affordable housing, health care, food, etc.) that we see in our communities developed to become what they are.
  • The institutions and ideas that are at play in in our society that perpetuate inequality and maintain the status quo of inequitable health outcomes for different groups.
  • The different societal interests at play in these situations, both to our benefit and to our detriment.
  • The ways in which communities can bring their gifts and talents to building places in which everyone is welcome, everyone thrives and conditions are improving for all.

You will emerge from this event with shared language about health equity and the roots of inequality, and stronger connections to benefit your ongoing work and relationships.
It is not:

  • Lobbying training
  • A policy writing workshop
  • A new organization or coalition

Rather, it is a way to strengthen your community in your work and engage more allies in this work.
