UVA Engineering presents Ana Navarro, political strategist, national Hispanic campaign manager for multiple Republican presidential campaigns, and CNN contributor. Her talk will take place on Thursday, November 30, from 6-7:30pm in Newcomb Ballroom.
The talk, sponsored by SEAS, is part of the second Excellence Through Diversity Distinguished Learning Series. The series is an initiative of UVA Engineering’s Office of Diversity and Engagement and is part of an effort to redefine diversity as excellence expressing itself through the intersection of all people’s perspectives and lived experiences, rather than traditional definitions. This definition supports UVA Engineering’s mission to leverage the talents and best efforts of all in order to create and disseminate knowledge, prepare future engineering leaders, solve global challenges and make the world a better place.
Ana Navarro is a well-known Republican strategist and a political analyst for CNN, CNN en Español, ABC News, and Telemundo. Respected on both sides of the aisle for her straight shooting and candor, Navarro was born in Nicaragua, and in 1980, as a result of the Sandinista revolution, she and her family immigrated to the United States.
