One of the most persistent and pernicious challenges of human civilization has been systemic inequity: societies set up to the advantage of some groups and to the disadvantage of others. What is systemic inequity? How is it perpetuated? What are its historical and contextual roots? What kind of leadership is required to dismantle inequity and build a just and inclusive world? Join Maimuna Ahmad, Founder of Teach For Bangladesh in an exploration of these questions and more through the example of education in Bangladesh.

MPP Forum is a weekly event normally scheduled with lunch* on Fridays during the academic year. It allows each MPP student to showcase their career journey and expertise on policy issue of their choice with the SPIA community. This formal presentation is about 50 minutes followed by 20 minute Q &A.

*RSVP required. Lunch will be served at noon. We will try our best but cannot guarantee accommodation for all dietary restrictions.
