Boston Chapter Event: It's 5:00 Somewhere - "Stakes is High: Meeting the Urgency of This Moment"

Friday, April 23, 2021, 5‑6pm EDT
Location: Online
Registration Deadline: Thursday, April 22, 2021

Don't miss this inspiring conversation about urgent challenges of today.

A nation struggles to battle a global pandemic and at the same time undo centuries of systemic racism, all while recovering from one of the most consequential and contentious elections in its history. It sounds like something out of a sci-fi novel, but this is our reality. For some, the impacts of this moment are mostly viewed through our phones and televisions. However, for others, the pain is much closer to home and the stakes are much higher. This workshop will focus on how we as individuals and collectively through our work can meet this moment with the urgency that it requires, especially for the people who are counting on us most.


Dr. Raul Fernandez is an accomplished speaker and educator, with thousands of people having attended his workshops at campuses, conferences and organizations around the country and internationally.  He is the co-creator of the popular Wide Lens film series at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, which seeks to explore underrepresented perspectives through film and conversation.  Dr Fernandez holds degrees in Communication and Nonprofit Management from Boston University, Barry University and Northeastern University, as well as a doctorate in Educational Leadership & Policy Studies from Boston University.
