New Location! Town Hall at Eighth and Seneca
Discovery Days 2016 has a new location AND a new look!
Timing is everything, and the 2016 Presidential election challenges us to acknowledge how race and gender shape informed discourse and decision-making. This year’s Discovery Days Planning Committee has reimagined a fresh format for Discovery Days that will examine and address how race and gender are both explicit and implicit influences on our thinking, our actions and our philanthropy.
Be a part of this groundbreaking event and push yourself beyond your personal perspective. Invite a friend to join our conversation!
The event will be held on two days: November 3 & 9. Please register for each day you will attend, and feel free to come for the whole day or part. More specific schedules for each day will be released in the coming weeks - stay tuned.
