March 26 | 3:00 - 4:00 pm ET

This spring a virtual group, Haitian Creole in Higher Education Speaker Series Conversation Club, is taking place which is a 10-week pilot initiative where once a week, Haitian Creole speakers in higher education will meet for one hour. All meetings will take place on Fridays at 3pm Eastern time and will require the Zoom registration link to join which will stay the same for each week. Every week a different speaker from a different type of initiative will speak for 20-25 minutes about their program, followed by a question and answer group discussion period. 

On March 26, Dr. David Tezil will discuss how the knowledge of local practices can inform international development and self-sustaining poverty reduction efforts in Haiti.
