Please join us for a lunch talk at the Princeton Entrepreneurial Hub with Majora Carter, Keller Center's Visiting Lecturer. Majora Carter is a real estate developer who applies corporate talent-retention strategy to underperforming economic zones that she refers to "low-status" communities. She is quoted on the walls of the Smithsonian Museum of African-American History and Culture: "You don't have to move out of your neighborhood to live in a better one" which is also the subtitle of her new book, Reclaiming Your Community. Her award winning work in green infrastructure, tech-inclusion, broadcast media, and real estate all come to bear in this highly accessible look at how the "non-profit industrial complex" spends more and accomplishes less every year for the past half century, and what to do about it now.
The first ten people to register and send in a question for Majora Carter to address in her talk will be given a free copy of her latest book, "Reclaiming Your Community - You Don't Have to Move Out of Your Neighborhood to Live in a Better One." Books will be distributed in person at the talk on Friday, March 25. Email questions to Stephanie Landers by Tuesday, March 22.
Requests for accommodations can be made when you register to attend. Please provide at least 7 days advance notice.
