03/11/2014 Cafecito: What's going on in Venezuela?

Cafecito: What's going on in Venezuela?
Sponsored by Association of Latin@s and Allies in Public Service (ALAS)

Date: Tuesday, March 11, 2014
Time: 2:30pm- 3:30pm
Location: 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Fl., NYC
                      The Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue

On February 12th, thousands of students hit the streets in Venezuela's major cities leading a demonstration that demands better security, and an end to goods shortages and protected freedom of speech. However, as the protest began to gain support the government led by Nicolas Maduro, began to suppress them violently, ending in several students killed. Since then, a divided Venezuela, led by the younger student generations, has continued to march against the government repression, lack of security and economic conditions. Maduro has blamed the students of conspiring against the government, and has imprisoned the major opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, accusing him of terrorism. The demonstrations have not stopped and neither the repression.

In our cafecito we will discuss the implications of this movement for Venezuela and for the Latin-American region.

About the Kovner-Behrman Health Forum
Established by NYU Wagner Professor Anthony Kovner in 1996, the annual Kovner-Behrman Health Forum convenes leading health experts for a dialogue about how to improve the healthcare delivery system. With extensive experience as both a health practitioner and academic, Professor Kovner recognized the value of bridging the gap between the two sectors. Each year, experts at the Kovner-Behrman Health Forum debate a different healthcare topic that is relevant to both practitioners and researchers, with the goal of learning from one another and improving overall health outcomes.

02/26/2014 A Book Launch for The Color Bind: Talking (And Not Talking) About Race at Work

A book launch for The Color Bind: Talking (And Not Talking) About Race at Work

Presented by NYU Wagner and the Research Center for Leadership in Action (RCLA)

Date: Wednesday, February 26, 2014
Time: 6:00pm – 7:00pm Conversation with the authors | 7:00pm – 8:00pm Reception
Location: NYU Wagner, 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Floor, NYC
Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue

Join authors Erica Gabrielle Foldy, Associate Professor at NYU Wagner, and Tamara R. Buckley, Associate Professor at City University of New York, as they discuss their new book The Color Bind. The discussion will be moderated by Melody Barnes, Vice Provost at NYU and former Director of President Obama's Domestic Policy Council. NYU Wagner Professor David Elcott will provide opening and closing remarks.

Public service organizations regularly face issues related to race and ethnicity, but usually resist actually talking about them. The authors have identified this as the color bind. This book grew out of a study of child welfare workers. Foldy and Buckley observed teams over several years to see how their members discussed race and ethnicity in their work, and found that most teams barely broached the topic. In fact, only one team regularly brought race or ethnicity into their conversations. They dug into what made this team different and gleaned some important lessons for social service organizations, advocacy groups, public agencies, schools, health providers, and other social sector contexts.   

 

The Color Bind shares in-depth case studies of this team and others, and outlines strategies - including modeling desired behavior and encouraging movement toward color cognizance - for organizations looking to transcend the color bind and engage race in ways that advance their mission and create trusting relationships.

Panelists:
Erica Gabrielle Foldy, Associate Professor of Public and Nonprofit Management, NYU Wagner
Tamara R. Buckley, Associate Professor of Counseling , Hunter College, and Associate Professor of Psychology, City University of New York

Moderated by:
Melody Barnes, Vice Provost, Global Studies Leadership Initiatives, New York University, and Senior Fellow, NYU Wagner

Opening and closing remarks by:
David Elcott, The Henry and Marilyn Taub Professor of Practice in Public Service and Leadership, NYU Wagner

Wednesday, February 19, 2014
7:30pm - 10:00pm

Room 808

There is a national conversation happening now about the challenges women face in the workplace and their transforming role in society and business (thank you Sheryl Sandberg, Anne-Marie Slaughter, Melissa Harris-Perry, and many more). But women still earn 77 cents to men's dollar. And while making up half the workforce, only 18 percent of the top leadership positions are held by women. 
 
So join us as we DO something about it. 
 
Gather with the NYU community and millions across the country for the Take the Lead Challenge, which calls on all of us (men, too!) to prepare, develop, inspire, and propel women to take a fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors by 2025. It’s today’s women’s movement - a unique catalyst for women to embrace power and reach leadership parity.
 
The event will begin at 7:30 PM with an NYU special guest speaker (TBA) and refreshments. Starting at 8:00 PM, we will live stream the national event, which will:
·  Inspire you with dynamic speakers like Facebook COO and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg (via live stream)
·  Give you the tools to chart your personal course to success
·  Connect you with other NYU women to network and support each other
