Second Nature invites you to a Community Conversation hosted in partnership with the Anchor Learning Network (ALN) and the Intentional Endowments Network.

Leveraging Local Assets for Community Resilience
October 1, 2020 | 12-1:30PM EDT

Description:  While COVID-19 and the subsequent economic fallout has taken center stage as some of the nation’s most urgent challenges, the legacy and impact of systemic racism and the effects of climate change continue to threaten the communities many colleges and universities call home. This moment requires us to consider the interconnected relationship between each of the challenges and imagine cross-cutting solutions by collaborating with various higher-ed stakeholders and reaching beyond our work silos to improve institutional and community outcomes.

The unique purpose of this Community Conversation is to convene a diverse group of higher-ed leaders to explore how to leverage institutional assets and resources, in order to promote community resilience in a post-pandemic context. By drawing from examples of institutional collaboration this session will invite participants to consider how best to work together to address these intersectional issues that are at play in creating more racially equitable and sustainable communities.

This interactive Community Conversation will include presentations from universities, and small group discussions to explore the roles that different stakeholders within an institution can play.
