Speaker to discuss how to create a more inclusive campus

Publication Date

Pooja Kothari ’03, an expert in bias awareness, will discuss “Creating a More Inclusive Campus: Gender, Unconscious Bias and Union’s Role,” on Tuesday, Jan. 14, at 5:30 p.m. in the Nott Memorial. A reception precedes the talk at 5 p.m.


The event is free and open to the public.

Kothari’s visit kicks off a yearlong celebration of co-education at Union. In the fall of 1970, the College admitted women for the first time.

Kothari began her career as a public defender with the Legal Aid Society, advocating for indigent clients and justice reform for members of marginalized communities. She founded Boundless Awareness as a training program to highlight bias in the legal system. It has developed as a program to address bias in the workplace, higher education institutions and other organizations.

She received a B.A. in economics and Spanish from Union, an M.A. in international relations from Johns Hopkins University, School for Advanced International Studies, and a J.D. from Brooklyn Law School.
