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.

Food System Network Leadership: Lessons From the Pandemic

| 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

How Has COVID-19 Changed Food Systems and Network Leadership?

 

The past year has created pressing new demands on social service providers, including food banks, nonprofits and other food-related organizations. While the food systems sector was already a hub for collaborative innovation, COVID-19 further accelerated the importance of network leadership skills and strategy for those working on issues like nutrition, food security, environmental justice and more.

This July, Visible Network Labs will bring together a diverse group of Network Builders, Thinkers, and Leaders focused on food systems. They’ll join us for an hour of discussion on what has changed over the past 12 months, what trends they see in the world of networks, and how we can improve our collaborative impact in this new post-COVID age. Learn more about our panelists below!

Our speakers include:

  • Moderator Dr. Robyn Mobbs, Co-Director of the CU Denver Center on Network Science
  • Marissa Silverberg, Food Systems & Policy Administrator, Jefferson County Public Health
  • Wendy Peters Moschetti, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Nourish Colorado
  • Erin Snyder Ulric, Implementation Director, Colorado Blueprint to End Hunger
  • Minerva Delgado, Director of Coalitions & Advocacy, Alliance to End Hunger
