TED Talk Diversity Dialog Series for May
Tuesday, May 23, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (PDT)
Join us for a 15 minute TED talk followed by a discussion of the topic.
Ted Talk Speaker Mellody Hobson is President of Ariel Investments
and Chair of the Board of Directors of DreamWorks Animation. Mellody encourages us to get comfortable with conversations around race. She talks about the difference between being color blind and color brave.
Mellody describes how her company views diversity as a competitive advantage and encourages the audience to get to know people of diverse backgrounds and thought patterns.
In this hour, we will discuss and explore our own hidden assumptions about race.
