Fireside Chats

Fireside Chats was a series centered on discussing topics that affect each of us in our community through engaging panels of academic experts, students, alumni, and community leaders. Each Fireside Chat focused on a different topic with a goal of creating an environment where we listen to each other and share resources, allies, and connections.
