INSPIRE — A Luncheon to Benefit Connections

October 11 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Connections for the Homeless INSPIRE

Connections is proud to welcome Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt as the keynote speaker for INSPIRE, Connections’ annual fall luncheon. Dr. Eberhardt is a winner of the highly-coveted MacArthur “Genius Grant” and a professor of psychology at Stanford University. She also recently published the book “Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do.” Her work has been featured on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, CBS This Morning, NPR’s All Things Considered, and in TIME magazine.

Following the luncheon and keynote, attendees will be invited to join local civic leaders for an intimate discussion of how bias plays a role in perpetuating NIMBY-ism and, in turn, a lack of affordable housing in our communities.

Tickets to the luncheon are $125 each and include a copy of “Biased.” Tickets may be purchased online at www.connect2home.org/inspire.
