“SFC Boardroom” Series To Debut with Jeff Lindor of the Gentlemen’s Factory
St. Francis College (SFC) is set to launch its newest conversation series, The SFC Boardroom, featuring Jeff Lindor as the inaugural guest. The founder and CEO of the Gentlemen’s Factory in downtown Brooklyn, Lindor will sit down with SFC president Miguel Martinez-Saenz to discuss his life’s work of “finding innovative solutions that aim to break the barriers to success and enhance the lives of boys and men of color in today’s world.”
Lindor founded the Gentlemen’s Factory in 2014 as a safe, collaborative space for professionals and entrepreneurs of color. An incubation hub for creatives, the Gentlemen’s Factory provides members with access to comfortable workspace and conference rooms where they can study, meet with clients and network. It also serves as a recruiting nexus for employers from both the private and public sectors.
Sponsored by the SFC Office of Multicultural Student Affairs and the Office of the President, The SFC Boardroom represents a signature collaboration within SFC’s cultural heritage month celebrations and activities. All interviews will feature an intimate exchange among members of SFC’s President’s Cabinet and Cultural Club leaders and prominent New York City business leaders.
“I am excited that St. Francis College and the Gentleman’s Factory have the opportunity to build a truly effective student-centered partnership that will recognize and acknowledge an individual’s life journey, the realities of a student’s daily routine, and the current state of the world and then place that collection of experiences and situations into the context that they can succeed in this world as men of color,” said Dr. Stanley A. Bazile, Chief Student Affairs Officer and Dean of Students at SFC.
The inaugural SFC Boardroom talk will take place on Monday, Feb. 28, 2022, at 3 p.m. in the fourth-floor Multipurpose Room, located at 180 Remsen Street. The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited; to confirm your attendance, please register in advance or email [email protected].
