Fifteen Sackler students, led by Dean Dan Jay and first-year graduate student Najah Walton, attended last week’s cultural walk through Dudley Square, in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood. This was the second cultural walk of the year, following “Exploring the Cultural Diversity of the South End,” and is part of the Sackler School’s yearlong Cultural Awareness for Career Success series. Students took the Silver Line to Dudley Square, where they learned about the history of the area and explored the neighborhood. The evening was capped off by dinner at Suya Joint, a Nigerian restaurant.

The next Cultural Awareness for Career Success event will take place on December 12 at 6pm. Hope Freeman, Director of Tufts’ LGBT Center, will deliver the talk “Understanding the Climate and Policies for LGBTQIA+ Folks in the Workplace.” Other upcoming events in the series include a panel on faith awareness and a third Cultural Walk, this one through Chinatown.
