Metroparks DEI Speaker Series
March 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Metroparks DEI Speaker series is a way for us share in open conversations, to expand our learning, and advance the concepts and practice of diversity, equity and inclusion as part of our communities, southeast Michigan and beyond. The theme for 2021 is Unity of Purpose; we will have national, regional, and local speakers present on a variety of topics related to the theme throughout the year.
Heather McGhee will kick off our speaker series. A renowned expert on the American economy, Heather McGhee is one of the most brilliant and influential thinkers exploring inequality today. Both her viral TED talk and her instant New York Times bestseller The Sum of Us reveal the devastating true cost of racism—not just for people of color, but for everyone.
We invite you to join us virtually for a keynote address and Q&A with Heather McGhee.
Ages 16 and up.
