Black Futures in the Classroom, speakers, Angie Beeman, Marxe School of Public and International Affairs and Rojo Robles, Department of Black and Latino Studies
We believe that teaching is reciprocal: namely, that students and faculty share in the production of knowledge. The diversity among our student populations also offers a kind of local and global perspective that has been underutilized. In this fireside chat, scholars, and students will address the significance of Black Studies and African Studies. Following this intellectual and practical exchange, Dr. Angie Beeman, Dr. Rojo Robles, and other Baruch’s Black Studies Colloquium faculty will develop public knowledge projects with their students. Following this intellectual and practical exchange, Baruch’s Black Studies Colloquium faculty will develop public knowledge projects with their students inspired by the open education innovations of #Schomburg Syllabus and #PRSyllabus. All Baruch, faculty, and staff are encouraged to drop in, listen, chat, and reimagine what we can learn and create with Black studies in the classroom across different fields and disciplines.

DELTA Seminar: Human Resource Governance Within a Workforce Ecosystem, speaker, Dr. Shad Morris, Brigham Young University
The Delta Seminar sponsored by the Narendra Paul Loomba Department of Management, Baruch College, CUNY presents “Human Resource Governance Within a Workforce Ecosystem,” by Dr. Shad Morris, the William F. Edwards Distinguished Fellow and Professor of Management at the Marriott School of Business, Brigham Young University. To understand how human resources are governed outside of the traditional organizational context, the authors develop a framework to help reconcile strategic dualities found within a business ecosystem. Reconciling these tensions requires that firms engage in establishing a dynamic equilibrium through their configuration of capabilities, workforce composition, and cultures within the ecosystem. This review and framework provide the foundation of a theory of human resource governance.

Open Banking: The Ethical Pitfalls of a Revolution in Consumer Services, speakers, Prof. Nizan Geslevich Packin, Department of Law, Raúl Carrillo, LPE Project and Yale Law School, and Matthew Adam Bruckner, Howard University
During the last several years the Open Banking movement has quietly gathered pace in the United States with the help of entities that have become known as data aggregators. The rise of FinTech services, the popularity of smartphones, and even the Covid-19 pandemic have all increased consumers’ reliance on new products and services that have been enabled by Open Banking’s free flow of financial data. But open banking also raises many dilemmas, which relate to issues such as consumer privacy, innovation, cybersecurity, discrimination, financial stability, and even competition law. The panel on open banking will introduce and discuss these issues along with what regulators are doing to address the relevant concerns. Presented by the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity.

Zicklin Talks Business Webinar Series: What Are the Key Risks Facing Global Banks and How Do They Manage Them?, speakers, Larry Zicklin, BBA ’57, Lisa Farkovits, Barclays, and Kenneth Abbott, Department of Law
Global banks face a host of challenges. Traditional risks include future changes in the macro economy, interest rates, liquidity, and competition; newer ones are digital transformation, cryptocurrencies, reputational risks, and ESG issues. Dare we even mention how they must be dealing with Russia’s intervention in Ukraine? How do these organizations measure and manage these risks? What are the potential implications of the failure of one such institution on the wider financial system? Larry Zicklin (BBA ‘57) discusses these questions with Lisa Farkovits, Managing Director and Global Head of Model Risk Management at Barclays, and with Kenneth Abbott, Lecturer in the Zicklin School Department of Law. With an introduction by Dean Fenwick Huss and a Q&A session moderated by Associate Dean Gwen Webb. For more information on this event and others, click here.
