Event Description:

Award-winning journalist, executive producer and documentarian Soledad O’Brien will host the Lehman College Foundation’s Leadership Gala, a virtual fundraiser to support vital student programs.  The evening’s honorees, BronxCare Health System and former NV Energy CEO Michael Yackira ’72 will receive awards at the event, to be held Tuesday, June 8, from 7 to 8 p.m.

The evening will also serve as the launch for the College’s National Advisory Committee on Food Insecurity co-chaired by legendary Chefs Kwame Onwuachi and Alice Waters. The group will consult on ways in which the College’s 37-acre campus could be utilized to create edible gardens, how food preparation could be optimized to create more meals, as well how to impact on the legislative front regarding policies that would ease the financial burden on college students, many of whom have to choose between paying tuition and eating. All of the task force’s efforts will be assessed and documented to create a playbook of best practices.
