Brunch and Beach Salon Series: August 13th
The expectation is that investing in 'a good education' will guarantee our next generation economic mobility and social respectability.
With even fewer guarantees, many of us are more than willing to take the risk and bet on selective k-12 college prep schools and institutions of higher learning. The outcomes are students who think critically, are innovative, collaborative, and can create positive change in communities.
But what are the real costs of ‘a good education’ and how do we ensure our children will win and don’t become over-burdened with debt doing so?
How do we make sure students of color have the social and emotional support and professional networks to successfully navigate predominantly white institutions and industry understanding their cultural capital - who they are, whom they come from, and where they are headed?
On Tuesday, August 13th 2019 RIISE returns to the beautiful Winnetu Resort and South Beach with a dynamic group of industry, legacy wealth, and educational thought-leaders who will dive-in and consider with us the present-day virtues are of 'a good education’, the stakes involved with it, and how to thrive, not just survive.
Industry thought-leader, Richelle Parham, will lead the discussion with contributions from legacy wealth thought-leader, Dr. Pamela Jolly and educational thought-leader Trina Gary, along with Elon Collins - Riverdale ’19 & Brown ’23.
There will be plenty of food for thought, the soul, the body, and a ton of fun for the whole family!
We encourage you to join us for 'critical conversations by the sea' and empower yourself with valuable considerations that will impact educating future generations. Come and enjoy a wonderful Vineyard Summer brunch while expanding your networks and meeting some new faces.
