FREDERICK, Md.—A panel presentation on investing in human life through education, job skills training and advocacy is the topic of Hood College’s annual Social Visionary Speaker series April 9 at 7 p.m. in the College’s Whitaker Campus Center Commons.
Panelists Angie Dunlevy and Christopher Kyriacou will present “Human Capital: Investing in the Preservation of Dignity.” They will discuss the ways they are making an impact to preserve the dignity of individuals and how that, in turn, positively affects the community in which they live. Alumnus Nate Erb will serve as the moderator.
Dunlevy, an advocate for women and children who have been abused and abandoned, serves as the international coordinator for the nonprofit Orphan Sunday. Her region of focus is Central America.
Kyriacou has spent the past eight years with AMAR US, a nonprofit that focuses on the health, education and training for the people of Iraq. His career has been dedicated to working in conflict management in crisis areas throughout the world.
Erb is an intern with The Samaritan Women, a nonprofit that focuses on providing restorative care to survivors and bringing about an end to domestic human trafficking through awareness, prevention and advocacy.
The Social Visionary Speaker Series was established to introduce the Hood and Frederick communities to individuals who have successfully turned unique visions and ideas into real and practical solutions that enhance the quality of life for others, and to inspire fresh and imaginative ways of thinking about contemporary issues.
This free, public event is sponsored by the Catherine Filene Shouse Career Center and Office of Service Learning.
