Sherrod To Speak At Diversity Dialogue Event

ATLANTA - The situation with Mrs. Shirley Sherrod and the United states Department of Agriculture which occurred earlier this year shows that there is much “unfinished business” that has yet to be resolved on our diversity journey. There is a need for more productive and illuminating dialogue of these sensitive, critical issues in our society. Managing diversity (i.e., making a quality decision in the midst of differences and similarities and their accompanying tensions and complexities) is an ongoing effort that requires awareness, skill and practice.

Dr. R. Roosevelt Thomas, Jr., president of Roosevelt Thomas Consulting and Training and Sherrod, the former USDA executive who was fired from her post when an edited video depicting her with negative racial views was distributed to media outlets, will have moderator Jovita Moore from WSB-TV, Channel 2, explore beyond the headlines and expose guests to the insights and lessons individuals, companies, federal agencies and countries can learn from Sherrod’s eggshell situation.

The evening reception and dialog will be held Wednesday, December 8, 2010 from 6:00 -9:00 pm at Emory University Law School, Tull Auditorium. The event will also include a book signing by AIMD founder, Dr. Roosevelt Thomas, a noted diversity management pioneer and author of seven books, of which his latest is, “World Class Diversity Management: A Strategic Approach”.
