Brooklyn Museum Event, Co-Sponsored by DCNY & BADA

This DGALA event, co-sponsored by the Dartmouth Club of New York and BADA, is not to be missed!
Co-hosted by Amanda Rosenblum ’07 and Lizzy Hennessey ’09

First, we will visit the Brooklyn Museum to view the new Kehinde Wiley exhibit. Kehinde is a gay black NYC-based artist who paints portraits of people of color in heroic poses. The NY Times has called the exhibit “mind-teasing,” “eye-catching,” and “hard to ignore“; “His paintings reflect some of the problems and pleasures of being alive right now, in times fraught with corrosive bigotry and inequality.” (Smith, 2015). While there, you can also view the Chitra Ganesh: Eyes of Time exhibit on female power and, of course, the permanent collections.

We will then after-party next door beginning at 4pm at Bar Sepia (234 Underhill Avenue). Light appetizers will be provided! Drinks are on you; full bar available for very reasonable prices. If it’s nice out, we can hang out in the backyard. Kids are welcome at Bar Sepia until sundown and encouraged to attend this event!

Note on Pricing: Youth (19 and under) are free at the museum, Student and Senior admission is $10, and you can get in for no charge with a new NYC Municipal ID card. All others are $16.

Event Details: April 19th, 2pm to 6pm

Friendfactor, Dartmouth Run Non-Profit for LGBTQ Allies, Launches Fundraising Competition

Joanne Sprague ’04 and Chris Pearson Smith T’13 lead the non-profit Friendfactor to activate LGBT allies in business schools and workplaces across the country.

THE STORY

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: DEC 31, 2014

Help us make business schools a great place to be for all students!

Friendfactor’s 3rd annual MBA Ally Challenge is in full swing, with 23 top US business schools competing to engage as many students as possible as allies to make their MBA programs great environments for their LGBT classmates.

To support the sustainability of the MBA Ally Challenge in 2015 and beyond, we’re inviting students, alumni, and friends to get in on the fun. Between now and Dec 31, 2014, you can contribute to Friendfactor on behalf of the school you love (or another group you feel close to), and have the chance to win prizes and props in addition to supporting your school’s commitment to equality. Details are below. Thank you for your commitment to activating allies for LGBT equality and creating spaces where every person can be proud of who they are!

HOW TO CONTRIBUTE

There are two ways you can get involved:

  1. Donate on behalf of the school you love by clicking “Donate to a fundraiser” above and choosing your school from the Team dropdown list. You can also choose the “Unaffiliated” team.
  2. Set up your own group fundraising page by clicking “Set up your fundraiser”, and see if you and your friends or colleagues can beat out the best MBA programs in the country.

You can also invite your fellow alums and friends to join you in contributing to support your school or group. Just send them the direct URL link to your fundraising group page and that group will get credit for the donations you bring in!
