Join Irshad Manji, Idriss Aberkane, and Yong Zhao for Three Perspectives on the Future of Education on Thursday afternoon at the conference.
A New York Times bestselling author, professor, and media personality, Irshad Manji teaches at Oxford University's Initiative for Global Ethics and Human Rights. She is also founder of Moral Courage College, which equips people to do the right thing in the face of their fears. Her latest book, Don't Label Me, shows how all of us can reclaim our humanity—and each other's—in a time of trenchant tribalism.
Idriss Aberkane is President of the Bioniria Foundation (Swiss Foundation for Bioinspiration), President of General Bionics SA, President of Chréage SA and Founder of the zero interest microcredit operator Eirin International in Senegal (which planted more than 20,000 trees and accompanies more than 40 families in the Senegal River Valley).
Yong Zhao is Foundations Distinguished Professor in the School of Education with an appointment in the School of Business at the University of Kansas. He is also the Global Chair Professor of Education at East China Normal University, a global chair professor at the University of Bath in the U.K., and a Professorial Fellow at the Mitchell Institute for Education Policy at Victoria University, Australia.
