New Podcast Explores Girls Empowerment Program
The fourth episode of our LionShare Podcast – "Ruling Our Experiences" – explores the complicated social and emotional landscape teenage girls experience and the innovative program Lawrence uses to empower them.
ROX, which stands for Ruling Our eXperiences, is an evidence-based, girls empowerment curriculum founded by Dr. Lisa Hinkelman in Columbus. It is 20-week program offered to girls in the fifth, seventh, ninth and 12th grade levels. The mission of ROX is to equip girls with the knowledge and skills necessary to live healthy, independent, productive and violence-free lives.
"ROX is bigger than a class or a course," said Upper School Dean of Students Shanika Lovelace. "It's a movement."
