HBS Community Conversation on Race

Thursday, June 11, 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. ET

To register, please refer to the original email from the Dean’s Office sent to all alumni on Monday, June 8.


All members of the HBS community (students, alumni, staff and faculty) are cordially invited to participate virtually in a conversation on race in America.

We believe that it’s critically important that our entire community better understand the lived experience of many of its African American members.  Several HBS community members have agreed to share their experiences and perspectives at this difficult time, and others will have the opportunity to share as well during the session.  All conversation attendees will have an opportunity to post their own thoughts following the event, for the benefit of our entire community. 

Prior to this conversation, we encourage you to read two powerful accounts of African American experience: a letter from Emerson College President Lee Pelton (Harvard University Ph.D. ’83), and the HBS note on African American Inequality in the United States. Regardless of whether you are able to read these accounts, please try to participate in this conversation that is so important for our community.
