Davenport Discussion to Highlight Legislative Limitations on Social Change

August 30, 2017  | 1 min read


Jennifer Childress ('03), area development director of the United Negro College Fund, will lead the School of Public Policy Davenport Discussion roundtable seminar in SPP Rm 179 on the Drescher Graduate Campus on Wednesday, September 6, at noon. Childress will discuss the limitations of legislative policy for social change and how her concern for promoting inclusive work places led her to think outside the traditional public policy box.

Each semester at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy, the Davenport Institute hosts a series of lunchtime Davenport Discussions with practitioners, journalists, innovators, and researchers who speak to students on a wide range of issues from state and local finance to the use of technology in government to the outlook for cities in a state budget crisis and much more. These interactive sessions give students an opportunity not only to hear from experts in the field but to ask questions and make personal connections as well. For more information contact Sarah Axen.

Lunch will be served.

All Davenport Discussion sessions are eligible for one (1) Professional Development credit for School of Public Policy students.
