Fostering Inclusive Conversation Across Societal Divides: Reflections from and with IC’s 2017 Honorary Degree Recipients

Saturday, May 20 at 3:00pm to 3:50pm

Campus Center, Clark Lounge

This informal conversation is a chance to get to know the two honorary degree recipients who will be part of the Sunday Commencement program.

Ann Thompson Cook has provided visionary leadership in movements promoting social justice for nearly 50 years including co-founding Many Voices: A Black Church Movement for Gay and Transgender Justice.

La June Montgomery Tabron is president and CEO of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, which is leading a Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) enterprise to help communities embrace racial healing.  In different spheres, both have worked for many years to bring people together to affirm our collective humanity and heal the divides in our country.

Ms. Cook and Ms. Tabron will speak briefly of their experiences and insights from organizing dialogs that bridge differences, especially in these polarized times. We will spend most of our time together in a discussion circle with those present.
