Description

Companies like Amazon are expanding rapidly into cities across America. While many see it as opportunity for economic development, others view it as spurring gentrification. Come learn from experts in public policy and business about how gentrification is shaping U.S. cities including Detroit, San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, and more. Then work within small groups to develop strategies to meaningfully enter and exit communities, whether that’s for MAP, internship, or full-time roles. You don’t need to be working within the tech industry or an expert in public policy to join! This event is open to all who are interested in building upon their comfortability entering and exiting communities purposefully and authentically.

Lunch will be provided!

Facilitators include:
Brad Killaly, Associate Dean of MBA and Strategy Professor
Allison Bernstein, MBA1 and former Business Inclusion Program Manager at Google
Yazier Henry, Lecturer in Public Policy at the Ford School
