    After George Floyd: Historical Literacy, Solidarity, and Active Allyship for a New World

    Register Full Details

    Facilitated by Elizabeth Swanson and Jane Edmonds, this 4-week non-credit bearing course examines how and why the killing of George Floyd in particular has unleashed a new movement for racial justice. Regardless of your identity, 'After George Floyd' will increase your fluency in the historical origins and repetitions of racism as a foundation for more advanced goals of recognizing implicit bias and building solidarity and active allyship across difference. We invite the Babson alumni community to face with us, with open minds, ears, and hearts, the revelations of this post-pandemic, post-George Floyd moment as hard evidence of the hard truth that racism and violence are central to-not an aberration from-the US national narrative. This course supports participants in exploring solidarity and active allyship as critical tools for dismantling systems of racism and building systems of equity and justice-in our communities, our organizations, and our shared world.Course Information:This is a non-credit bearing, lifelong learning opportunity for our alumni community. The course will be hosted on Babson's Canvas platform, with a $5 enrollment fee that will directly support Babson's Diversity & Inclusion fund. The course is designed for asynchronous, self-paced learning and reflection, with content separated out by weekly modules. Participants should plan to commit 4-6 hours per week. The duration of the course is four weeks, with an opportunity to join a live discussion session during the last week of the course.Elizabeth Swanson, Mandell Family Senior Term Chair in Literature and Human Rights Jane Edmonds, Vice President, Programming and Community OutreachInstructions on creating a Canvas account and the link to join the course will be sent in a confirmation email to registrants on Friday, October 9th.

    While we're experiencing a massive influx of brands attempting to do good, leaders struggle to get everyone on the same page with their vision. Branding has become a revolving door of costume changes, with authenticity often lost in the script. How do we find the critical place where brand engages employees as agents of change, inspires loyalty in customers, and drives business growth? In a word, we must find purpose. We must move past branding as an outside activity and embrace it and our organization as one in the same. Katie Burkhart, founder and lead brand strategist for Matter 7 and CEO of tech company Illumyne, leads a session on what operating as a purpose-driven organization looks like and what role brand plays in strategically advancing both the organization and its impact.
