The First-Year Experience Office will host a small, private dinner at the Harvard Faculty Club on Wednesday, November 7, at 6:30 pm, at which a select group of 10 first-year students will have a chance to dine with Kimberlyn Leary, Associate Professor of Health Policy and Management and Associate Professor of Psychology. If you are interested in this exceptional opportunity and can commit to attending from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, please apply.
Dr. Kimberlyn Leary is an associate professor of psychology at the Harvard Medical School and an associate professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, where she directs the Enabling Change program. Dr. Leary is also the executive director of policy outreach at McLean Hospital and a faculty affiliate at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School. She has taught courses on negotiation and conflict transformation to undergraduates at Harvard College, to senior executives at Harvard Law School, and to physicians working in high-conflict zones in Thailand. She studied Dutch-Muslim neighborhood conflict as a visiting scholar at the University of Amsterdam. As a 2015 Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Fellow, Dr. Leary served for one year as an advisor to the White House Council on Women and Girls where she helped develop and then direct “Advancing Equity,” an initiative focused on cross-sector approaches to improve health, education, and economic outcomes for women and girls of color. Her research and scholarly work are centered on leadership, negotiation capacity, and large-scale systemic change.
This Faculty Club dinner is part of the FYE’s Gober Family Uncommon Fare program, designed to give first-year students a chance to meet outstanding members of the Harvard community, to meet one another, and to see what is truly special about the College, all made possible by a generous gift. We certainly hope you can join us!
