Dialogues for Diversity: A Conversation with NYT's Bestselling Author Heather McGhee
Online via Zoom
Join us for an exciting conversation with Heather McGhee, speaker, advocate and New York Times bestselling author of The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together. In this discussion we will explore our barriers to human commonality and the benefits that we gain as a community and country when we come together in unity to accomplish things that we cannot do on our own, a concept McGhee has coined as the “solidarity dividend.” There will be time for audience Q&A.
Before joining this session, we encourage you to read her book, check out her TedTalk or subscribe to the new Sum of Us Podcast series, which began in July 2022.
