Now in its 15th year, the series has brought outstanding speakers to Rochester to give insight and ideas that have influenced public thinking about design in the public realm in Rochester. This year, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage and the 200th birthday of Susan B. Anthony, we have chosen and all-female lineup of speakers, which are listed in the attached postcard. With the exception of the May 20 luncheon, all of the events are free of charge and open to the public.
Shin-pei is a lay member of the Public Design Commission and the Executive Director of the Gehl Institute, a non-profit organization that works to improve the public realm. Previously she was the Deputy Executive Director of TransitCenter, a foundation committed to improving urban mobility.
She founded and directed the cities and transportation research program and the Leadership in Transportation Solvency project at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and served as Deputy Director of Transportation Alternatives, Chief Operating Officer of Project for Public Spaces, was a founding member of the NYC office for ZGF Architects, and worked with Fortune 500 companies to develop Internet strategies.
To mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the 200th anniversary of the birth of suffrage pioneer Susan B. Anthony, the University is organizing an institution-wide celebration to call attention to the achievements, contributions, and influence of Rochester women, both at the University and in the greater community.
