His research examines the importance of uncovering systemic inequalities, illuminating agency and developing meaningful relationships with students and their parents for academic success. He is a graduate of Teachers College, Columbia University, and recently completed a two-year postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Social Organization of Schools.  Keri N. Althoff, PhD, is the Provost’s Fellow for Research Communication and an associate professor of epidemiology in the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the School of Medicine.

Over the last year and a half, the website has grown to be a resource to help advance the understanding of the virus, inform the public, and brief policymakers in order to guide a response, improve care, and save lives. Learn firsthand from the team what it took to create this invaluable resource and how it has evolved throughout time. ABOUT THE PRESENTERS Beth Blauer, JD, is the Executive Director and co-founder of the Centers for Civic Impact at Johns Hopkins University (Civic Impact). As a dedicated public servant and international expert on government performance programs for more than fifteen years, Beth Blauer spent her career working to improve people’s lives by bringing data into governments’ decision-making processes. Blauer founded Civic Impact, originally as the Center for Government Excellence, in 2015 and has since successfully worked with over 140 mayors from around the globe to advance the use of data and evidence.

KriegerSchoolofArtsSciences PeabodyConservatory HopkinsatHome Virtual July 05, July 5, MondayBrought to you by Hopkins at Home The Conductor takes the audience into the heart of classical music, and into the soul of one of its top, most beguiling artists, the internationally renowned conductor Marin Alsop.  Born in New York, Marin Alsop first saw the legendary Leonard Bernstein when she was nine-years old. At that moment, she knew what she wanted to be in life: a conductor. Told that girls can’t do that, Marin struggled against enormous prejudices and institutional obstacles for decades to become one of the world’s most renowned classical music conductors. The Conductor follows Marin’s improbable rise and her single-minded pursuit to achieve her dream. Using music conducted by Alsop herself, the director has created an emotional documentary, with a score that compliments the high and low points of the conductor’s life, perfectly mirroring the character’s interior landscape.  During this panel discussion moderated by Dean Fred Bronstein, Marin Alsop, Bernadette Wegenstein, and Annette Porter will share their experiences creating this film and respond to questions from the audience. The first 250 registrants located in the United States will receive a private link through which they can screen the film in its entirety as part of this private screening event. Learn more about the film here: https://www.the-conductor.com/ About the Panelists Marin Alsop is a conductor of vision and distinction, representing a powerful and inspiring voice. Convinced that music has the power to change lives, she is internationally recognized for her innovative approach to programming and audience development, her deep commitment to education, and her advocacy for music’s importance in the world. Alsop currently serves as Chief Conductor of the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, the first Music Director of the University of Maryland’s National Orchestral Institute + Festival (NOI+F), and Chief Conductor and Curator of Chicago’s Ravinia Festival, where she curates and conducts the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s summer residencies. She is also Conductor of Honour of Brazil’s São Paulo Symphony Orchestra (OSESP) and assumes the title of Music Director Laureate and OrchKids Founder of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in 2021, after an outstanding 14-year tenure as its Music Director. As well as enjoying longstanding relationships with the London Philharmonic and London Symphony Orchestras, she regularly guest conducts such major international ensembles as the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Cleveland, La Scala, Leipzig Gewandhaus and Royal Concertgebouw Orchestras. She was Music Director of California’s Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music for 25 years. In collaboration with YouTube and Google Arts & Culture, Alsop is spearheading the “Global Ode to Joy” (GOTJ), a crowd-sourced video project to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. Together with the world’s leading arts organizations, she invites the global community to share the call for tolerance, unity and joy of the composer’s Ninth Symphony in videos tagged #GlobalOdeToJoy. The project culminates in December 2020 with a grand video finale: a GOTJ highlight reel, set to a performance of the “Ode to Joy” anchored by the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony, the international Stay-at-Home Choir and Alsop herself. The first and only conductor to receive a MacArthur Fellowship, Alsop has also been honored with the World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award. Recognized with multiple Gramophone Awards, her extensive discography includes recordings for Decca, Harmonia Mundi, Naxos and Sony Classical. To promote and nurture the careers of her fellow female conductors, in 2002 she founded the Taki Concordia Conducting Fellowship, which was recently renamed in her honor as the Taki Alsop Conducting Fellowship. Bernadette Wegenstein (Director) is an Austrian-born documentary filmmaker and academic living in the United States. Her work brings together her feminist thought and her interest in human-centric storytelling. She studied semiotics with Umberto Eco, received her PhD in Linguistics, and went to Stanford University as a post-doc. She is currently a professor of media studies at The Johns Hopkins University, where she directs the Center of Advanced Media Study. She’s directed four documentaries, including The Conductor and The Good Breast.      Annette Porter (Producer) after twenty years advising companies on strategy and communications, followed her passion for photography into the world of documentary films. The result is a finely tuned instinct for persuasion through pictures. Founding Nylon Films to create factual content from a female perspective, Annette is as comfortable with her camera in a corporate boardroom as on a high altitude trail in Chile and has directed and produced work in arts and social justice, with critical acclaim in The Washington Post, BBC and NBC. As Director of the Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund at John’s Hopkins University, Annette spearheads social entrepreneurship through film, awarding grants and galvanizing industry support for young filmmakers. About the Moderator Dean Fred Bronstein, DMA, an accomplished pianist, dedicated music educator, and successful chief executive of American symphony orchestras – was appointed the first dean of the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University on June 1, 2014. During his first term Bronstein instituted a comprehensive, five-year Breakthrough Plan to focus the administration on strategic goals and improving the school's financial stability, a process that was renewed in 2019-2020. Under his leadership, Peabody adopted a new curriculum that redefines the education model for aspiring artists, preparing them for 21st-century careers. The school also launched two innovative academic programs in 2018—in dance and in music for new media—which helped increase the school's applications and enrollment.  Bronstein has led Peabody in establishing ties with other Hopkins schools and with Baltimore community programs to bring performance and arts education beyond the halls of the conservatory. He helped establish the Johns Hopkins Center for Music and Medicine, and its affiliate, the Johns Hopkins Rehabilitation Network Clinic for Performing Artists at Peabody is the first of its kind on a music school campus. Bronstein has also been an advocate for equity and inclusion and has been outspoken in his belief that attracting new and diverse audiences is necessary to ensure the future success of the performing arts industry. Prior to joining Peabody, Bronstein served as president of several orchestras, including the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, Omaha Symphony, and Dallas Symphony Orchestra. As a performer, Bronstein toured for eight years and could be heard on New World Records as part of Aequalis, a chamber group he co-founded with a focus on new American music, innovative programming, and educational outreach.

Knopf). Emma will also discuss her time at Hopkins, how it put her on her current path, and how she got published. This program will be presented on Zoom. A link will be shared with all registrants in advance of the program. ABOUT THE BOOK When folk legend Jesse Reid falls in love with an unknown singer-song-writer named Jane Quinn, Jane's entire life changes. Plucked from the small island off the coast of Massachusetts where she grew up, she soon finds herself on tour with Jesse and his band, a record deal in hand, and a hit song climbing the charts. Caught up in the thrill of the road and the profound connection she has with Jesse, Jane is blindsided by the discovery she makes about the dark secret beneath his music. Heartbroken and blackballed by an industry built on appearances, Jane, a truly gifted musician with a secret of her own, must figure out just how much she is willing to sacrifice for her dreams.  “I’ve never read a book that so uniquely captures the experience of creativity and the shimmering coolness of being in a recording studio as music history is made.  Emma Brodie perfectly channels the languorous romance of the time and the beautiful struggle of an artistic soul trying to break free.  So many of the passages throughout Songs in Ursa Major are such pure poetry, I got chills as I read them.  I could drink a case of this book, and I’d still be on my feet.” - Kevin Kwan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians To purchase the book, CLICK HERE.  ABOUT THE AUTHOR Emma Brodie (A&S '11), Author, Songs in Ursa Major Emma Brodie has worked in book publishing for a decade, most recently as an executive editor at Little, Brown's Voracious imprint.

Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Raychel’s interests in preventive health, environmental sustainability, and community empowerment began with her discovery of the sustainable food movement. As an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins, she immersed herself in academic and research pursuits to learn more about this emerging field. Double-majoring in Public Health and Global Environmental Change & Sustainability, Raychel directed her studies to better understand how pesticides, toxicants, and environmental conditions affect human and ecological health. She learned about the physical effects and psychological influences of our diets; how climate change will affect local, regional, and global food production and security; and the social and political implications of various food policies. During this time, she worked with the CLF as a student research assistant (2010 to 2013) and as a full-time program coordinator (2014 to 2015), gaining a more critical eye toward understanding the complexity of creating systemic solutions to our food-related issues. After completing her Master’s degree in Food, Space & Society at Cardiff University School of Geography & Planning with the support of the US-UK Fulbright Commission, Raychel returned to the CLF full-time in spring 2017.
