Yvonne Gittins has a little trouble understanding the problems some of her white colleagues have with their mothers.
Gittins, an African-American assistant dean of student financial aid at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, considers her 65-year-old mother a good friend and has a similarly close relationship with her two grown daughters.
"I listen to some of my colleagues talking about the problems they have relating to their mothers, and I feel grateful," says Gittins, 48, of Cambridge.
Gittins has always worked, too, beginning with a secretarial job at MIT after she graduated from high school while she attended night school to earn her degrees.She is now president of the Eastern Association of Financial Aid Administrators.
"I would have loved to have been able to stay home with my kids until they were ready for school, but economics just wouldn't allow it," says Gittins, whose children were cared for by her aunt.
Even so, Gittins says her experience and those of her forebears have had a positive influence on relationships among women in her family.
"I feel very close to my daughters, and I think they take a strong work ethic from my experience," Gittins says.
