It’s been said there’s no rest for the wicked, and I must be especially wicked because this Monday, March 4 after reeling from the warm fuzzy glow of literary love shared at SF Cantina’s Babylon Salon, I’ll be moderating a panel discussion with six stellar agents of change who each have something to say about Generation X & Y and the commitment to public service.
The voices of tomorrow are here now. The College is thrilled to welcome six high-achieving guest panelists — all representing Generation X and Y — who will address the key questions regarding the legacies they’ve inherited from the Baby Boom generation:
— What are Generation X and Y interested in and committed to in the world around them?
— Why have they chosen a career path of service to their communities?
The evening’s conversation — part of the sesquicentennial series of “Great(est) Conversation(s)” — will include a question and answer session designed to stimulate multi-generational discourse and underscore a core Saint Mary’s College idea: Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve.
Panelists: Malia Cohen, member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors; Evan Low, member of the City Council and former mayor of Campbell, Calif.; Laura Martinez, mayor of East Palo Alto, Calif.; Jahmese Myres, research and policy associate, East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy, Oakland, Calif.; Felicia Phillips, principal, Bella Vista Elementary School, Oakland, Calif.; and Jeremy Yamaguchi, mayor of Placentia, Calif.
Sponsored by the Liberal & Civic Studies Program and co-sponsored by the Communication and History Department, the Leadership & Organizational Studies Program and the Catholic Institute for Lasallian Social Action.
