The Wilson Lecture: Al Gore

Wednesday, April 25th at 5:30pm & 8:30pm (Live Stream in Norden Auditorium)

Wellesley College is excited to welcome former Vice President Al Gore to their campus to deliver this year’s Wilson Lecture. The annual Wilson Lecture, which brings internationally influential speakers to Wellesley, is the highlight of Wellesley’s academic calendar and its premier academic lecture.

The 45th vice president of the United States, Al Gore was inaugurated on January 20, 1993, and served eight years in the position. Previously, he was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives beginning in 1976 and of the U.S. Senate from 1984 until he became vice president.

Gore is cofounder and chairman of Generation Investment Management, a senior partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and a member of Apple Inc.’s board of directors. He currently spends the majority of his time working with the Climate Reality Project, a nonprofit devoted to solving the climate crisis, of which he is the chairman.

The global leader in the fight to halt climate change, Gore will engage in a wide-ranging, candid conversation with Wellesley College Trustee Sue Wagner ’82 before answering questions from the community. Gore and Wagner, who are friends and colleagues, will discuss, with candor and conviction, what is at stake for us all.

Video: Are All Asians Rich?

Babson College - Reynolds Campus Center

Thursday, April 26th at 1:00pm-2:00pm

Watch Video online at: https://tinyurl.com/MTVdecoded

 

There is a sterotype that Asian Americans are seen as very financially successful and the common arguement that their financial success is due to a combination of being family oriented and education fucsed. But is it?  Share your thoughts during this casual conversation about the MTV's Decoded video on Asian Americans, sterotypes, and wealth in the Rynolds seating area near Dunkin' Donuts. Light snacks provided. 

 

-----------------------------------------

Asian and Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) is a month of celebration, education, and reflection of the contributions of Asian and Pacific Islanders who have enriched America’s history and are instrumental in its future success.

While this month of celebration is held nationally in May, there was a desire to create a series of programs available to the Olin and Babson community while classes were still in session. 

Asian/Pacific encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island).

Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month originated with Congress in 1977. In 1992 Congress passed a Public Law which annually designated May as Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month. This month in particular was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.

In honor of this annual month of recognition,  all members in our community are encouraged to take some time to engage in open dialogue, reflect, celebrate, and attend some of our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) community events.
