Flyer for panel

We are thrilled about the turn out for our retention panel, "Engaging Your Community: Retention of African Americans in Knoxville." We had approximately 160 people attend, including many leaders in the African American community in Knoxville. We want to thank everyone for coming and contributing to a lively conversation.

If you were unable to attend, you can view a recording of our event here:

We have received substantial feedback that many would like to see a continuation of this topic. We plan to host a series of conversations in the spring as an exciting way to keep up the momentum initiated by our November panel.

Please email if you are interested in supporting the continuation of this conversation.
