Join us for an evening with noted author, MSNBC and NBC commentator, executive, and thought leader, Heather McGhee, in conversation with SD's Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Kali Baird.
Recognized as one of the most brilliant and influential thinkers exploring inequality today, McGhee's viral TED talk, "Racism Has a Cost for Everyone" and her new book, The Sum of Us, reveal the devastating true cost of racism - not just for people of color - but for everyone.
As Former President of the progressive think tank Demos, Heather’s work is centered on designing and promoting solutions to inequality in America. A leading voice in the media, McGhee regularly appears on NBC’s Meet the Press and MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Deadline White House, and All In.
