Tearing Down the Walls
In the summer of 2019, several juniors and seniors (Brycen Brown, Kiran Peterson, Jacob Hanai, John Thornton, Emanuel Barrett, and Maxwell Battle) created the Tearing Down the Walls Club. We founded this club in response to a charge at the end of a two-day Southeastern Diversity Conference at Vanderbilt University called Tearing Down the Walls. TDW promotes constructive conversations about race relations, respect for any and all sexual orientations, and social justice. Our mission is to create action through conversation by inviting all-school speakers, hosting monthly discussions, writing in the school paper, and organizing events such as panel discussions. We often collaborate with other schools to reach beyond the MBA community. Check out this page for upcoming plans, past events/speakers, and general info.
