This year’s NYU Reads selection, Tara Westover’s memoir Educated (Random House, 2018), raises compelling questions about access, belonging, and not belonging. These questions will be explored by a panel of distinguished NYU faculty who work in the areas of bias, poverty, and inequality in relation to education, health care, social policy, and diversity and inclusion. 

The panelists include Dolly Chugh (NYU Stern School of Business), Stella Flores (NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development), Robert Hawkins (NYU Silver School of Social Work), Jonathan Morduch (NYU Wagner Graduate School of Public Service), and Eileen Sullivan-Marx (NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing). The panel will be moderated by Lisa Coleman, Senior Vice President for Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation. 

Skirball Talks hosts visionaries from the worlds of politics, the arts, sciences, academia, and more. This event is free and open to the public.
