AUGUST EXPERT PANELS 

The series of online panels hosted by NVINY’s Civil Society Engagement (CSE) team will consist of 3 panels and will take place through 3 consecutive weeks, with one panel taking place each week.

  1. Nishka Malik’s panel discussion will be concerning indigenous people and mining,
  2. Parker Dolton’s will be on education initiatives in developing countries,
  3. Arielle Rosenthal’s will be on the future of humanitarian aid.

Each panel will feature 4 speakers and will be 60 to 90 minutes. The panels will take place on Zoom, and will preferably be broadcasted on Youtube and Facebook for more engagement with the audience.

We are still looking for a few more panelists and if you know anyone who would want to speak in the expert panel on one of these three topics if you could encourage them to reach out to the CSE Team lead Inci Sayki at  incisayki@nonviolenceny.org
