Nearly eighty members of the Bowdoin community were on hand at Yahoo in New York City March 9, 2017, to honor the work of AIDS activist Peter Staley and his brother, Barclays CEO and Bowdoin College Trustee Jes Staley ’79, P’11.

“It was an evening of powerful stories—of Peter Staley’s life-saving activism and personal fight against AIDS, of Jes Staley’s promotion of LGBT causes—and combatting of homophobia—in the banking world, and of their relationship and tremendous mutual respect,” said Matt Roberts ’93, a member of the Alumni Council’s Diversity Committee.

“I found it particularly moving to share the evening with so many members of the Bowdoin family— including alumni, parents, and trustees—a warm and welcoming group.” More about the event, including a slideshow, in Bowdoin News.
