Monday, April 17, 2017, 9-11 AM
Montgomery College: Rockville Campus, Science Center Bldg. Room 152
“The Washington metropolitan area is among the most diverse in the U.S. In fact, Germantown, Gaithersburg, Silver Spring, and Rockville are ranked as the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 9th most diverse American cities for their size nationally. But do we take it for granted? Can one live in the lap of diversity and not fully appreciate its benefits? Moreover, what are the implications of diversity in promoting peacebuilding and community? In a lecture and experiential activity, author and trainer David J. Smith will explore these concepts with the audience.” Free and open to the public. It satisfies the Multicultural and diversity training requirement.
