      Join the Yale African American Affinity Group, Asian Network at Yale, and Working Women’s Network for a book club discussion on The Truths We Hold: An American Journey by Vice President Kamala Harris, one of America’s most inspiring political leaders. The Truths We Hold is about the core truths that unite us, and the long struggle to discern what those truths are and how best to act upon them, in Kamala’s own life and across the life of our country. Register by Friday, April 23 for a chance to win a free copy of the book!

      By reckoning with the big challenges we face together, drawing on the hard-won wisdom and insight from her own career and the work of those who have most inspired her, Kamala Harris offers in The Truths We Hold a master class in problem solving, in crisis management, and leadership in challenging times. Through the arc of her own life, on into the great work of our day, she communicates a vision of shared struggle, shared purpose, and shared values. In a book rich in many home truths, not least is that a relatively small number of people work very hard to convince a great many of us that we have less in common than we actually do, but it falls to us to look past them and get on with the good work of living our common truth. When we do, our shared effort will continue to sustain us and this great nation, now and in the years to come.

      Finances are a leading cause of stress among women, and the past year has only intensified the strain. Four out of five women in a recent survey said they were weighed down by financial concerns ranging from job loss to low pay and limited savings.

      You can achieve greater financial wellness, even after a year like 2020. Join us for a miniseries with Susan Pepin ’87 and Kelley Holland, ’86 MPPM that will empower you financially so you can stress less, thrive more, and live life on your terms. 

      Part 2 of this series will address the First Steps to Financial Fitness:

      Even the best educations do not necessarily cover financial topics, so it is quite possible to reach adulthood without knowing the basics of money management. The good news is that you can develop financial habits and systems that will serve you the rest of your life. Even better, the sooner you start saving and investing on a regular basis, the more time your hard-earned money has to grow and support your life goals. Learn how to make all of this happen in this engaging, fact-filled webinar. 

      This webinar has been brought to the Yale community by YaleWomen in partnership with the Yale Alumni Association Shared Interest Groups.

He was fortunate to have been taught to read by his slave owner mistress, and he would go on to become one of the major literary figures of his time. His very existence gave the lie to slave owners: with dignity and great intelligence he bore witness to the brutality of slavery. Initially mentored by William Lloyd Garrison, Douglass spoke widely, using his own story to condemn slavery. By the Civil War, Douglass had become the most famed and widely travelled orator in the nation. In his unique and eloquent voice, written and spoken, Douglass was a fierce critic of the United States as well as a radical patriot. After the war he sometimes argued politically with younger African Americans, but he never forsook either the Republican party or the cause of black civil and political rights. His life and words ring true even today, especially given the racial tension currently playing out in the United States. David W. Blight is Sterling Professor of History and Director of the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition at Yale University. He previously taught at North Central College in Illinois, Harvard University, and Amherst College. He is the author or editor of a dozen books, including Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom; American Oracle: The Civil War in the Civil Rights Era; Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory; and annotated editions of Douglass’s first two autobiographies. He has worked on Douglass much of his professional life, and been awarded the Pulitzer Prize, the Bancroft Prize, the Abraham Lincoln Prize, and the Frederick Douglass Prize, among others. He writes frequently for the popular press, including the Atlantic, the New York Times, and many other journals. His lecture course on the Civil War and Reconstruction Era at Yale is on the internet at https://oyc.yale.edu/history/hist-119. Blight has always been a teacher first. At the beginning of his career, he spent seven years as a high school history teacher in his hometown of Flint, Michigan. Blight maintains a website, including information about public lectures, books, articles and interviews at www.davidblight.com. Moderator Professor Dr. Klaus Benesch is professor of English and American Studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich and former director of the Bavarian American Academy. false

In the discussion, moderated by Javier Arguello '03, panelists will speak to the following questions and reserve time for audience Q&A at the end of the session. More info on the session's panelists is included below. Challenges with Traditional Schooling: The way students think they learn differs greatly from how they learn and as a result they rely on ineffective strategies to learn. The current approach to teaching is often disconnected from how students learn and causes too many students to drop-out, struggle, and/or work too hard to do well. Schooling decreases creativity and student engagement. We produce a surplus of graduates with a deficit of skills that the economy demands. Science of Learning to Modernize Schooling: Top performing schools embrace the science of learning. In this virtual symposium, you will learn from renowned experts on human learning as well as school leaders to address the following questions: Why are schooling and learning not synonymous terms? What is learning success? How can teachers foster learning success? What is the science of learning, and how can it help us modernize our educational system? Why is research on human learning often trapped in academia? How does adversity and trauma affect learning and how prevalent is the effect? How have successful school leaders transformed their culture and learning outcomes by incorporating learning science?
