Mackin-Mailander Lecture
‘Breaking Waves: A Conversation with Schuyler Bailar’

Wednesday, October 19 at 7 p.m.
Jansen Music Hall, Clarke University

With a comfortable, inviting style that connects with all ages, Schuyler Bailar creates a learning conversation for a broad range of audiences. His work as a public speaker is the centerpiece of his advocacy. Schuyler’s story explores the universal challenges of trying to “fit-in” in our media-rich world with integrity and authenticity. He explains his struggles and why he ultimately chose to put many potential accolades at risk to be true to himself. Because he has lived his life from many perspectives – woman, Korean American, mixed-race, gay, trans, “Harvard white guy” – his story resonates with young and old, from all walks of life.
