Upcoming Inter-Branch Programs of Interest…………
March 14, 2015 Inter-Branch Diversity Program
In “Far From the Tree” author Andrew Solomon writes about the diversity of individuals, families, and groups who share profound difference – the differences of deafness, dwarfism, Downs syndrome, autism, severe disability, prodigiousness, and transgenderism. It is a book about endurance, love, imagination, struggles, and resilience, times of despair and time of awe-inspiring triumphs. It is a book that encourages much reflection about human identity.
Prompted by the study of this remarkable book, the AAUW Inter-branch Diversity Group invites members of the Easton, Bethlehem, and Allentown branches and the public to attend this year’s diversity program. We will hear from a panel of four adults whose lives have been shaped by exceptional difference; the panel will be moderated by Dana Dunn, Professor of Psychology and Assistant Dean for Special Programs at Moravian College. Panelists will share their stories and perspectives on a variety of issues important in their – and our – lives. The panel presentations and discussions will conclude with time for Questions and Responses.
This is certain to be a program that will have a profound impact on the way we view our differences. It will educate, inform, and inspire all who attend.
JOIN US – From 9:30 to noon at Moravian College Theological Seminary, Bahnson Center, 60 Locust Street, Bethlehem, 18018. Telephone: 610-861-1516.
