A Briefing with Black Leaders: A Conversation with Black Women Who Serve as Law School Deans

12:45 p.m., to 2:15 p.m. Thursday, September 30

"A Briefing with Black Leaders: A Conversation with Black Women Who Serve As Law School Deans" is an open and authentic discussion ​with Black women who are trailblazers in academia and the legal profession​.​ ​This conversation will explore the benefits of having Black women in academic and legal spaces and the challenges experienced by Black women in these spaces. The panelists will share their personal experiences and offer advice on how to navigate a profession that has so few Black women. 

The speakers are Dean Camille Davidson, of Southern Illinois University School of Law; Dean Renee Hutchins, of the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law; Dean Danielle Conway, of Penn State University Dickinson School of Law; and Dean Browne Lewis, of the North Carolina Central University School of Law.​ Dr. Wende' Ferguson, Assistant Dean for Student Services at Penn State Law will moderate the conversation. ​

There will be two moderated portions. The first portion of the event will be a panel discussion, and the remaining half hour will allow the audience the opportunity to ask questions using the "raise hand" feature in Zoom, with the moderator directing those questions.
