A Conversation with… Dr. Michael Eric Dyson

August 5, 2009

As part of the new lecture series, Conversations with …, the Diversity and Inclusion Initiative of Third Sector New England hosted a presentation by Dr. Michael Eric Dyson for the region’s nonprofit community. The professor, CNN commentator, author and pundit spoke of the central role diversity and inclusion play in building cohesive and effective organizations – and strong communities.

He shared his insights on issues such as the politics of inclusion; the privilege of invisibility; institutional perpetuation of racism; challenging other “isms”; stereotypes and forms of bigotry; and rethinking the paradigm of race, bias, and class prejudice vs. concentrated poverty.

    I would love to share the teachings of Dr. Michael Eric Dyson on my face book page for everyone to see and hear what a great and powerful speaker he is and how he brings together the Woman and Men of Color, LGBT community, and woman and men of all races and gender. I love his “power” “his energy” his “enthusiasm” for what he believes in, as I agree with his beliefs as well. Being a feminist man I beleive stronger on his beliefs on woman than he does but he is still an amazing speaker.
