Forum 35 to Host Panel on Education in Baton Rouge
BATON ROUGE – Forum 35’s Cultural Diversity Committee will host an education panel April 29 at the LSU Student Union at 6:30 p.m.
The panel will feature key decision makers in education, ranging from the state and district level to parents of school-age children. Questions from the audience will be taken to encourage discussion on issues important to the community.
The event is free and open to the public. Parking on LSU’s campus is free after 6 p.m. Click here to register.
Cultural Diversity Committee co-chairs Ashley Cash and Katie Barlow said, “Improving education is critical to having a strong Baton Rouge and is one of the key factors young professionals consider in determining whether to settle or move to a new city or state. This panel will offer varied perspectives on the current education conversation in Baton Rouge and we expect the community to walk away with a clearer understanding of steps the district, state, non-profit organizations, and parents are taking to improve schools.”
Forum 35’s cultural diversity initiative is intended to build an organization that represents the community it lives in. This is achieved through promoting dialogue, discussion and activities that expose Forum 35 members to Baton Rouge’s rich and diverse culture.
Forum 35 is a community of young men and women improving Baton Rouge.
