The Yale Alumni Task Force on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion was formed in 2016 at the request of the Board of Governors of the Association of Yale Alumni. The task force was given the mission to provide leadership on the development of diversity and inclusion strategies in existing alumni programming, to leverage all forms of diversity to strengthen the alumni network, and to make recommendations for potential new programming and initiatives that might be offered to the Yale alumni community. Please join us for a special evening as the Task Force presents highlights of their final report, which was delivered to President Salovey in November 2017. Enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres on The Yale Club Rooftop, as we screen a short video featuring Yale alumni and then engage in a facilitated discussion. Elizabeth Alexander ‘84, renowned poet, author, and former chair of Yale's African American Studies Department will share remarks.
