Join the Gender Diversity and Public Policy Initiative on November 22 for a unique event: the human library.

Munk meets sustainable goals

The Human Library is a collaborative event being hosted by the Gender Diversity and Public Policy Initiative and the Intersectional Feminist Collective, giving participants the unique opportunity to speed-network and interview public policy and global affairs experts working in fields that touch on a wide array of sustainable development goals.
