GSA Invites Members to Participate in HBCU Collaboration
By CEO James Appleby, BSPharm, MPH
A new collaboration to build relationships between GSA and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) is underway, and you’re invited to be a part of it.
As initiated by four alumni/faculty of HBCUs from within the GSA membership — Drs. Tamara Baker, Ashley Jennings, Tiffany Washington, and Felicia Wheaton — a kick-off meeting for all interested parties will take place online on Friday, October 22, from 1 to 2 pm. ET. If you are an alumni, faculty, staff, or student who represents an HBCU, or just want to learn more, please sign up and put this on your calendar.
During the meeting, participants will get to know each other, discuss potential goals, and explore ways to further support each other. This meeting is open to both GSA members and non-members, so you are welcome to invite others who may be interested. In addition to a focus on moving forward, the group also would like to highlight the contributions HBCU scholars have made, and are currently making, within the GSA organization. (If you have any questions, contact GSA Director of Member Engagement Gena Schoen at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
It’s inspiring to see GSA members come together within GSA’s multidisciplinary framework to start a new collaboration to effect change. It’s efforts like these that are fully on display during October’s Pre-Meeting Engagement Month; take a look at the schedule to see what other topics on which you can engage!
