The Institute Equity and Community Office (ICEO), along with the Black Students Union (BSU), Black Women’s Alliance (BWA), Black Graduate Student Association (BGSA), Black Alumni of MIT (BAMIT), and the MIT Alumni Association invite you to attend a panel discussion in the wake of recent events in Ferguson, MO and New York.
The discussion will feature a panel of community activists, MIT faculty and students, who will offer commentary on US systems of inequality based on race, as well as potential strategies to affect change in race relations at MIT and beyond. Dinner will be provided, and all members of the MIT community are invited to attend.
Community members are encouraged to wear all black on the day of the event. To learn how national events affect MIT, you can hear our students speaking in Lobby 7 during noon-1pm December 10.
Follow-up conversations will take place at the Institute Diversity Summit, which will take place 1-5pm on both January 29 and February 12, 2015.
