Virtual Event

You may not be able to walk a mile in someone's shoes, but you can listen to their stories. Join us to hear personal stories told by diverse individuals who bravely and openly share their truth. You'll hear stories that inspire you, that move you, that inform you and that help advance our shared commitment to equality, opportunity and respect. Regardless of our differences—seen and unseen—don’t miss this chance to come together as we inspire, teach and learn from each other.

This was a stunning presentation. I kept shaking my head in agreement the whole time the first speaker talked about accents. I was surprised I didn't know about the Buder Center when the speaker spoke about his journey to discover his own Native American roots. All of this would have been both interesting and entertaining. However, Mr. Jawad's talk was the star of the day. He was entertaining and inspiring. I so want to adopt his philosophy, which I interpret as the ability for each of us to see ourselves as "first chair" in all aspects of our lives. I hope to attend many more such sessions that inform, inspire, and evoke thoughtful conversations.
