Event Details

The Colin L. Powell Center for Leadership and Service proudly announces the spring semester installment of the second annual “Conversations in Leadership” series at The City College of New York. Our program brings together experienced policymakers and opinion leaders from all levels of politics—local, state, national and federal—to discuss their substantive areas of expertise, their experiences working in and studying the public sector, and the lessons they have learned about effective leadership with the City College community.

This semester, The City College of New York's Michael Busch will sit down with three special guests to discuss leadership and policy in the public sphere. We are honored to welcome Ms. Maya Wiley, founder and president of the Center for Social Inclusion. A civil rights attorney and policy advocate, Ms. Wiley has litigated, lobbied the US Congress and developed programs to transform structural racism in the United States and in South Africa. Prior to founding the Center for Social Inclusion, Maya was a senior advisor on race and poverty to the Director of U.S. Programs of the Open Society Institute and helped develop and implement the Open Society Foundation—South Africa’s Criminal Justice Initiative. She has worked for the American Civil Liberties Union National Legal Department, in the Poverty and Justice Program of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. and in the Civil Division of the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. Maya previously served on the boards of the Tides Network, Human Rights Watch, the Institute on Race and Poverty at the University of Minnesota School of Law and the Council on Foreign Relations. She was named a NY Moves magazine 2009 Power Woman. In 2011 Wiley was named as one of “20 Leading Black Women Social Activists Advocating Change” by The Root.com.

The conversation with Maya Wiley will take place on Thursday, February 21 from 12:30-1:45 at the Colin L. Powell Center for Leadership and Service (Shepard Hall, Room 558) on the campus of the City College of New York.
