The Dean's Office at the Yale School of Management, in conjunction with The Broad Center at Yale SOM, is pleased to welcome Erica Green, New York Times correspondent, for our R. Peter Straus ’44 Lecture Series. Join us as she discusses her journey to her current bold approach to journalism, and how she pushes herself and her newsroom colleagues to tell the stories that would otherwise go untold, no matter how much blowback it may cause, and find the meaning behind the story for children and families.
Green joined the New York Times in 2017 and covers education, with a focus on civil rights and equity in our nation’s schools. Previously, she covered education for The Baltimore Sun, where she won more than one dozen local and national awards for her education coverage, and was a part of the Sun team named a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist for breaking news coverage of the death of Freddie Gray and the protests that followed.
The virtual conversation will be moderated by Hanseul Kang, Assistant Dean and Executive Director of The Broad Center at Yale SOM, with opening remarks from Kerwin K. Charles, Indra K. Nooyi Dean & Frederic D. Wolfe Professor of Economics, Policy, and Management.
Named for R. Peter Straus YC ’44, a pioneer in public-service radio, the R. Peter Straus Lecture Series presents talks by prominent individuals on topics that relate to the press and public responsibility.
