Shirley Sherrod to Speak at Emory Law/AIMD Event

On Wednesday, December 8th, the Emory University Law School in conjunction with The American Institute for Managing Diversity, Inc. (AIMD) is hosting a dialogue event featuring a conversation between former USDA executive Shirley Sherrod and Dr. R. Roosevelt Thomas, Jr., a nationally renowned diversity management pioneer.

Thomas, 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 two moderators from the media explore beyond the headlines and expose attendees to the insights and lessons individuals, companies, federal agencies and countries can learn from Sherrod’s eggshell situation.

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”.

Tull Auditorium is located at 1301 Clifton Road in Atlanta.
