Trendsetters & Trailblazers: Exploring Native American Heritage

Join us on Tuesday, November 7th at 12 p.m. CST to continue our exploration of IES Abroad's Trendsetters and Trailblazers — remarkable students who have ventured abroad to explore more of themselves and the world. November kicks off Native American Heritage Month and we'll dive into the richness of Native American culture and tradition during our alumni panel.

This month's panel features alum, Bo Shimmin (IES Abroad Milan | Spring 2018), and Les Lo Baugh Jr. (IES Abroad Vienna | 1965-1966). Hosted by IES Abroad Brand Coordinator and alumna, Ashley Simmons (IES Abroad Granada | Spring 2016) the event will open with a welcome and land acknowledgment by IES Abroad Director of Diversity Relations & Advising, Noelle Baldwin. Our alumni panels are known to be dynamic and engaging discussions with opportunities for reflection and insight, constantly allowing us to learn more about our students, ourselves, and the world of study abroad.

Note (engagement level): This event will be in Zoom webinar format with time for audience questions at the end of the presentation.
