About the Podcast
The world is facing serious challenges. Mason President Gregory Washington's conversations on these topics with thought leaders and experts will broaden perspectives, enlighten and educate.
When Gail Christopher, executive director of the National Collaborative for Health Equity and a George Mason University senior scholar, talks about “ensuring a future,” she means creating a system of equity that produces opportunities for everyone. In her second podcast with Mason President Gregory Washington, Christopher expands on the idea that academic institutions are essential for shifting the cultural ethos to one that is not racist, and discusses the Anti-Racism and Inclusive Excellence Conference recently held at Mason.
