Have you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall to hear what leading scholars have to say about current events? Are you curious about what kinds of conversations happen between experts when they sit down for coffee to chat about the challenges of our current moment? Coffee Breaks with Scholars is a unique series of engaging, informal research- and scholarship-informed conversations between experts on a variety of topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Each Coffee Break conversation touches on a specific topic related to the broader question: How can we reconstruct a more equitable society after COVID-19? Given the number of pressing issues that came to the forefront of the national collective conscience in 2020, this series also touches on issues of activism, race and racism, and matters related to the 2020 national election.

Note: Coffee Break videos will be added on a rolling basis.
