Today’s Write to Change the World seminar in New York City brought together experts from a wide range of fields and organizations. The group included faculty, staff, and students from NYU, Columbia, New York Medical College and the University of Maryland College Park, the Director and Founder of Asylum Arts, a Broadway Producer, the former Mayor of Bronxville, and more.
We were thrilled to have Amba Mpoke-Bigg in the room, who traveled from Ghana to be part of the day. Amba comes to us from the African Women’s Development Fund, a grantmaking foundation that supports local, national and regional women’s organizations working towards the empowerment of African women and the promotion and realization of their rights.
More from New York City tomorrow, where we’ll be hosting a “Generating Good Ideas,” a special seminar for OpEd Project alums. Generating Good Ideas draws on research on how we can speed the pace of ideas and cross-pollination. It is based on curriculum from our Public Voices Fellowship, which is our highest impact initiative that targets faculty and social justice leaders and is embedded in institutions like Yale, Columbia, Northwestern, The Ford Foundation, The Ms. Foundation and more.
