Expert Chat: “The Right to Breathe: A Community Conversation”

In the wake of the murder of George Floyd, protests demanding justice and respect for Black lives have swept the country and the world. For this week’s installment of Batten’s Expert Chat Series, Dean Ian Solomon will moderate a panel of trustees from the University of Virginia’s IDEA Fund for inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA). Our guests will speak and take questions on the current fight against systemic racism and the actions and impact of effective leadership. They will also discuss what the current situation means for the University, the Charlottesville community, and our nation, as well as what you can do to be part of the solution.

This Wednesday on Zoom, join the conversation with Dean Solomon and panelists Karima I. A. Bouchenafa, Jennifer Gibert Mencarini, and Kevin J. Carrington.
