During Georgia Tech’s Fifth Annual Black History Month Lecture, “Giving Voice to Justice for 50 Years,” Angela Rye, principal and CEO of IMPACT Strategies, political commentator for CNN, and political analyst for NPR, will discuss the recent controversies of sexual harassment, the unmasking of male privilege, and the impact of the #MeToo movement.
Presented by Institute Diversity and AASU, Angela Rye will examine:
- What factors gave rise to the #MeToo movement, and what is the potential of this movement to shift the dynamics of gender equity and equality in society?
- What are some of the most pressing issues facing women today, especially women of color?
- How can we use our story, our access, and our privilege to give voice to justice in the next 50 years?
- What can students and employees at Georgia Tech do to promote gender equity and equality, particularly in the current political climate?
