Leader’s Roundtable: The Cost of Education (Hybrid)

June 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Bring your lunch and join Leader Dr. Nori Rost and members for an engaging round-table discussion on the issues of the day and recommended readings.

Last month we talked about how education is the key to eroding inequality. But what happens when the cost to get an education is incredibly high? Thanks to Elinore for this idea.
