    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    Advertisements, television and news coverage all provide a mirror on the deeply ingrained, often unconscious biases still present in our society. In this provocative and empowering Conversation, we consider how the media we tune into every day perpetuates racial stereotypes and “otherness”—and how we can harness these same media to break down barriers and counteract societal biases.
