The National SEED Project
The National SEED Project (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) founded in 1987 by Dr. Peggy McIntosh was first established as a seminar-style, professional development opportunity for college and university faculty. After initial funding to support these efforts, additional funding by the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation was given to Dr. McIntosh to expand her work providing similar professional development opportunities for K-12 educators.
Through these monthly seminars, Collegiate faculty and administrators gain the necessary tools to create fair and just learning environments for all students. Likewise, faculty and administrators work to gain an understanding of the intersectionality of their own social identities, which in turn helps to support students as they grapple with their own and the opportunities and barriers associated with them. Ultimately, these monthly seminars provide a safe space to examine their personal “records” as they work to strengthen their teaching and learning curriculum and practices as it applies to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Rosetta Lee is a frequent visitor to Louisville Collegiate School. She led guided student groups in Middle and Upper School and adult groups four years ago through the Parents Association sponsored SPEAK Series. Ms. Lee returned to Collegiate last year to partner with me and the Board of Trustees’ Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategic Subcommittee. She is slated to return in early 2021 to continue the work we began last year. Since 2004, Ms. Lee has been a diversity speaker and trainer on various topics, including cross-cultural communication, identity development, and implicit and unconscious bias.
