Events

CU Denver School of Public Affairs strives to be an educational resource by offering a number of timely and relevant events each year. Community members, students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are invited to learn more about current topics and participate in ongoing discussions involving the fields of public administration, local governance, environmental sustainability, education and criminal justice. Consider joining us as we host subject experts and take a deeper look into the issues and opportunities facing local, state and national leaders. If you have questions about any of our events, please contact us at spa.events@ucdenver.edu.

Update about our events due to the coronavirus

In response to an official announcement from CU Denver regarding changes to the campus events policy, the School of Public Affairs will be holding all of our events virtually, unless otherwise indicated, until we are permitted to resume our in-person programming. This affects events such as our First Friday Breakfast and Criminal Justice Series, as well as our co-hosted events. Those not already on our events mailing list can subscribe to receive updates and invitations to our events.

September First Friday with the School of Public Affairs: Leading Toward Equity - Stories of Organizational Change

| 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM
Please join us for our premier First Friday event of the semester!

Leading Toward Equity: Stories of Organizational Change

Friday, September 11, 2020 
12-1 PM, MST
 
Equity. It’s a word that is on the minds of many people as we engage in a more public conversation about inequities in our culture, systems and society. In the School of Public Affairs, we explore social equity in terms of fairness, right, justice and freedom from the effects of bias. 
 
As more organizations recognize the need to move beyond solidarity statements and into the work of creating more equitable policies and cultures, we bring together panelists who have been doing this organizational work for some time. We will hear and discuss stories of organizational transformation - big and small - from the nonprofit and private sectors. Our panelists bring powerful examples of leadership, perseverance, protest and change that organizations in any sector can embrace.

Panelists:


Maggie Gómez
Deputy Director
Center for Health Progress

Alicia Jessip
Inclusion and Diversity Manager

Armando Martín
CEO, XL Edge and Board Chair

Joe Sammen
