Number of years of thought-leaders speaking to the St. Thomas community
For more than 30 years, St. Thomas alumni and friends have been drawn to the First Friday Speaker Series luncheons to network and hear first-hand from the community’s most interesting “thought leaders.” Their often candid and always relevant messages offer a unique perspective on the common good, and divulge what’s next for Minnesota and beyond.
The 2021-22 First Friday Speaker Series promises to again provide insights from thought-leaders about topics that pertain to the professional and community life of alumni and our local, regional and national partners. Join us!
St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter and Dr. Yohuru Williams, founding director of the Racial Justice Initiative at the University of St. Thomas will discuss racial equity, educational disparities and where we go from here.
