Straight Talk Texas – A Conversation with Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynt Marshall
Date: April 24, 2020

Sports is well known as “the great unifier” bringing together people across many divides–political affiliations, gender, race–in celebration and even in defeat. Sports provide solace and remind us that what we have in common is more powerful than what divides us.

Listen in as Texas 2036 President Margaret Spellings talks with the Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynt Marshall about how the NBA team is handling the disruption of COVID-19 and how the team is working with their employees and the community during this time.

What is Straight Talk Texas?

Today, it’s more important than ever for people across Texas to have access to discussions they can trust about challenges facing our state now and in the future. To be the best place to live and work, we need to listen, learn and be aware of what is on the minds of Texas leaders, policy experts, educators and health professionals.

If history is any guide, Texas can come back strong from the current challenges we face. It’s up to all of us to work together to make sure that happens. So, take 20 minutes and 36 seconds to listen in as state leaders talk about health care, education, workforce development and government performance. We hope these videos will provide a front-row seat to conversations that will illuminate and help shape the historic decisions currently facing our state.
