Dayton Metro Library’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee hosts a thought-provoking Brown Bag Lunch program on Wednesday, March 6, noon-1:00 p.m. in the Main Library’s Eichelberger Forum, 215 E. Third Street. TED Talks @ Lunch features a screening of three short TED Talk videos on poverty and racial injustice issues, followed by a moderated discussion. The free program is open to the public.
Karin VanZandt, former TEDxDayton speaker and current Director of CareSource Life Services will be the moderator. The Library’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee is dedicated to sharing varied perspectives and creating an inclusive, welcoming environment.
“Our goal is to spread communication and dialogue both within and beyond the Library,” said Diane Farrell, Director of External Relations and Development. “Some HR Departments may count this as official training, so bring a lunch and spend an hour gaining insight into issues of diversity and inclusion that impact the workplace.”
