Career Strategy Workshop - Personal Finance - Thursday, March 5 @ 12Pm In Gates 104 @ Gates Building, room 104

Dear Students, You are invited to the last Career Strategy Workshop for the winter quarter held next Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 12pm in the Gates Building, room 104 on Personal Finance for Engineers. *Career Strategy Workshop** **Topic: Personal Finance for Engineers** **Speaker: Adam Nash, CEO at Wealthfront** **Date: March 5, 2015** **Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm** **Location: Gates Building, room 104* Lunch will be provided! *Abstract:* Money matters. It's one of the top three reasons marriages fail in the United States, and financial goals are often tied to some of our most cherished responsibilities (our families, our children, ourselves). Unfortunately, the world of finance is filled with sharks and parasites, and the signal-to-noise ratio of searching for information yourself makes it difficult to figure out the right answers to even simple questions. Adam Nash (Class of 1995), CEO at Wealthfront, will be visiting to share a updated version of a presentation he gave on April 2011 at LinkedIn, right before their IPO. Called "Personal Finance for Engineers", it walks through some of the most relevant topics for you to consider when approaching money. It includes a thorough walkthrough of behavioral finance, as well as fundamentals about saving, debt and investment. Whether you are an engineer or you're just looking for a clean, honest walk through of useful concepts, you'll love this talk, made famous by its recent run on Business Insider. *Bio:* Adam Nash (BS Computer Science 1995, MS Computer Science 1997) is the President & CEO of Wealthfront, the largest & fastest-growing software based financial advisor with over $1.9 billion under management. Before Wealthfront, Adam held technical and executive positions at Apple, Preview Systems, eBay, LinkedIn & Greylock Partners.

Cultural Pluralism, Alterity, and Equity: Affirmative Action's Challenges @ Terrace Room, 4th floor, Margaret Jacks Hall, Bldg. 460

RICSRE invites you to a faculty seminar with Professor Petronilha Beatriz Gonҫalves e Silva Professor Emerita of Education and Racial-Ethnic Relations, Center of Education and Human Sciences at the Federal University of São Carlos, Brazil and Tinker Visiting Professor at the Center for Latin American Studies and CCSRE, Stanford University "Cultural Pluralism, Alterity, and Equity: Affirmative Action's Challenges" Thursday, March 12 | 12-1:15pm Terrace Room, 4th floor, Margaret Jacks Hall, Bldg. 460 Lunch will be served; RSVP on this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1HrVoDr94ZwYeP9zOHIsHhkbWvoSCXSYY9aB3n0szwGw/viewform?c=0&w=1 Co-sponsored by The Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE) This talk will focus on Brazilian experiences in implementing affirmative action policies in higher education. It will discuss the role of the Black Movement, the Indigenous People's Movement, the movement led by students and scholars, as well as strategies employed by the opposition. It will highlight the challenges faced in order to recognize and include the cultural pluralism of students in activities and curricula, to "surmount" the preponderance of a unique cultural norm, to rewrite knowledge as "pluriversal," to reinvent models of teaching, to manage non-hierarchical co-existence among different human groups, and to improve equity. Petronilha Beatriz Gonçalves e Silva is a full professor, and now professor emerita, in Education and Racial-Ethnic Relations at the Center of Education and Human Sciences at the Federal University of São Carlos, Brazil. Through a selection process within the Brazilian Black Movement, Professor e Silva was appointed to the National Council of Education from 2002 to 2006. During this time she played a central role in writing The National Curriculum Guidelines for the Education of Racial-Ethnic Relations and The Teaching of African and Afro-Brazilian History and Culture, which have since been implemented at all educational levels in Brazil. Professor e Silva's many contributions to education were recognized in 2011 when she received Brazil's Presidential National Order of Merit. Professor e Silva began her academic career in 1979 at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul where she completed a master's degree in Education and then went on to complete a doctorate in the Human Sciences and Education in 1987. During her graduate studies, she attended UNESCO's International Educational Planning Institute in Paris, France. Professor e Silva's scholarship, which includes publications in Portuguese, English, and Spanish, addresses themes related to African and Afro-Brazilian culture and history, the contributions of the Black Movement to the Brazilian educational system, as well as educational policy and ethnic-racial relationships.
