Author Priya Parker shares three easy steps to turn your meetings and holidays into meaningful, transformative gatherings.(This Talk includes concepts that also apply to online gatherings!) Mon, Jan 11 – The Beauty of What We’ll Never Know Almost 30 years ago, Pico Iyer took a trip to Japan, fell in love with the country and moved there. A keen observer of the human spirit, Iyer professes that he now feels he knows far less about Japan -- or, indeed, about anything -- than he thought he knew three decades ago. In this meditation on wisdom, Iyer expands on this curious insight about knowledge gained with age: that the more we know, the more we see how little we know. Mon, Feb 8 – The Real Story of Rosa Parks – and Why We Need to Confront Myths about Black History Black history taught in US schools is often watered-down, riddled with inaccuracies and stripped of its context and rich, full-bodied historical figures. Equipped with the real story of Rosa Parks, professor David Ikard highlights how making the realities of race more benign and digestible harms us all -- and emphasizes the power and importance of historical accuracy.
