Lora M. Robins Speaker Series is a community-wide, multi-part interactive speaker series that offers business, public, and nonprofit leaders valuable insights and practical knowledge from leading national and regional thought leaders.
This year's three-part series took place on April 26, May 25, & June 6, 2017. Each speaker explored the topic of education reform, with the first session focused on building a foundation of understanding around the science of learning and development research. That interactive session was led by Lindsay Hill of The Raikes Foundation (Seattle, WA). The second session, led by Derrell Bradford of NYCAN, focused on advocacy at the local and state levels. This built up to the final session with John B. King Jr. (President and CEO of The Education Trust as well as the former U.S. Secretary of Education under the Obama administration), which addressed policy change at the national level.
Stay tuned for more information on our next series to talk place in early 2018.
