Twenty underrepresented experts gathered at the Impact Hub Los Angeles to explore themes of expertise, credibility and what it takes to create meaningful change on a large scale.
The program brought together scholars, social entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, freelancers and policy advocates from a range of organizations and institutions, including the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, the University of California, the Ford Foundation, the Drug Policy Alliance and the Women’s Policy Institute. We were also joined by our very first Kora Scholarship recipient Lisa Brewer, an expert in literature and analytical storytelling. Others in the room are sparking conversation around homelessness, faculty diversity, criminal justice reform and effective education policy.
