Lani Guinier Visits SAIS

One of the benefits of being at SAIS is getting to engage in discussions with pioneers across the international relations field. Just last week Lani Guinier, Bennett Boskey Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, joined us to discuss issues of race, gender, and democratic decision-making.

Lani Guinier was the first woman of color appointed to a tenured professorship at the Harvard Law School.

This event was part of a month-long celebration of Black History Month. Throughout February, the SAIS Diversity Council, Africa Association, and school leadership will host educational, social, and community service programming to explore black culture, economic inequalities among minority groups, challenges and opportunities in international affairs.

If you couldn't make it out, there are plenty of other on-campus events happening this week for you to attend. Follow our "This Week at SAIS" blog series to get alerts on upcoming SAIS events that are free and open to the public.

A big thanks to Professor Guinier, and all those who participated!

Thanks for reading!
Jessica, Admissions Coordinator
