Dear colleagues,

Come support our students by attending this event!

I am excited to announce that there will be a student-led panel at today's event, titled Women in Leadership: Economic Justice in "UnBankable" Communities.
Participants in the student panel will engage Donna Katzin, Executive Director of Shared Interest, with questions about women in leadership, economic and community development, and global affairs. Shared Interest is a non-profit which works to engage banks to provide guarantees to future small business owners.

The student panel consists of:

  *   Jeremy Mango (Majoring in Economics and Urban Studies; CUNY Service Corps 2014-2015 service at Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce)
  *   Grace Walia (Majoring in Economics and Psychology; CUNY Service Corps 2014-2015 service at Chhaya through the Asian/American Center)
  *   John Rodriguez (Majoring in Accounting; CUNY Service Corps 2014-2015 service at Brooklyn Navy Yard)
  *   Andanta Djafar (Majoring in Corporate Finance; CUNY Service Corps 2013-2014 service at Ariva; President, Delta Phi Epsilon)
  *   Nigel Barker (Majoring in Corporate Finance; President, National Association of Black Accountants)

As part of the Year of South Africa, Queens College will host a presentation by Shared Interest -- a non-profit social investment fund that provides support for Southern Africa’s economically disadvantaged communities to sustain themselves and build equitable nations.  Launched the year Nelson Mandela was elected South Africa’s President, Shared Interest provides access to credit and mentorship for microenterprise and small business owners, farmers and cooperative members – the vast majority of them women -- who would otherwise be considered “unbankable.”

The program -- which will highlight themes related to community and international development, impact investing, women’s leadership, and strategies to promote social and economic justice -- is open to the entire campus community.
