With accolades including works in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and her impactful 2020 podcast, “In The Gap,” Chandra’s voice resonates deeply on DEI issues.

The evening’s theme, “Race and The 1619 Project,” offers a singular look into the groundbreaking New York Times initiative led by Nikole Hannah-Jones. In so many ways, the 1619 Project reveals history that we weren’t taught in school. How can the lessons from this pivotal work empower and reshape our DEI initiatives today? Join us to find out.
