Challenging Gender stereotypes…

…to build a future that is full of opportunities for everyone.

Ivy works towards this vision by facilitating student-centered group discussions in which the ideas of youth from all backgrounds are voiced and heard. As a follow up, she works with caring adults in the community who want to support the actualization of the ideas and needs expressed by their young leaders.

Most recently, Ivy has been sharing a music video for a song that she wrote entitled ‘Girls Sit Screaming’ in schools nationally and facilitating conversations with students, teachers and parents about how we can create a world in which mainstream constructs of gender don't limit any of our amazing youth as they come of age.


Ivy’s music video, Ivy’s teaching, and Ivy herself are all amazing. She presented to our Women’s Studies class and the students immediately connected to her. They were deeply engaged, sharing personal stories, feelings, and insights. She asked targeted questions to allow the students to develop ideas about sexism and gender stereotyping themselves. And they did! Ivy’s lesson brought out the highest levels of thoughtful participation we saw that semester. Months later they are still reflecting about how great an experience it was.

Ivy’s workshop with my students was excellent. She has such a way with students and her questions opened up many great conversations that continued well after she left. My students appreciated that they were being asked their opinions on these important issues. I felt that it was invaluable that Ivy asked them for solutions as well. They left that day feeling empowered and heard. We are so very grateful for her time and energy!

I have been a high school teacher for over 20 years and have had many guest speakers/artists but none have come close to the exuberance of Ivy Ross Ricci! She is an incredibly talented musician and educator. Ivy’s screening/workshop/discussion was the highlight of my students semester. She has a unique talent to both make all students heard and recognized as well as getting them to look at life from different perspectives. She is brilliant at getting teens to be self reflective and proactive. I know that she inspired many of my students to be the change they want to see in the world.
