Lessons from Innovative Asian Leaders: Promoting Peace and Social Change

  • Yale School of Management, Room 4430 165 Whitney Ave. New Haven, CT (map)

This panel will offer a wide-reaching survey of the issues currently faced in different parts of Asia, including international relations, humanitarian aid, and women's rights. Join us for a panel with two inspiring Yale World Fellows — Thynn Thynn Hlaing, former Country Director of Oxfam International in Sierra Leone, and ElsaMarie D'Silva, Founder and CEO of Red Dot Foundation — as they discuss their current work, their perspectives on local and global innovation, and choosing a satisfying and impactful global career. Refreshments will be provided.

This event, produced in partnership with the the Asian American Cultural Center (AACC) and the Asian Network @ Yale (ANY), is part of the Global Innovation Series, an exciting new partnership between Yale’s Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program and the Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale (Tsai CITY) established by 2017 World Fellow and Tsai CITY Innovator in Residence Baljeet Sandhu. As part of the Knowledge Equity Initiative, the series involves a set of events and discussions hosted around Yale’s campus to explore and celebrate the innovative work of groundbreaking global changemakers across industries, geographies, and cultures. Each event is built in partnership with other centers across the university to connect World Fellows with the community and to encourage multidisciplinary debate and knowledge exchange.
