Goizueta Business School and The American Institute for Managing Diversity (AIMD) will sponsor an event with Shirley Sherrod and Dr. R. Roosevelt Thomas Jr. at 7 p.m. Dec. 8 at Emory Law School’s Tull Auditorium (map).
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 talk beyond the headlines on insights and lessons individuals, companies, federal agencies and countries can learn from Sherrod’s experience.
The event will also include a book signing by AIMD founder, Thomas.
The event is by invitation only, but Goizueta will give away tickets Monday with contests on its Facebook and Twitter page. NOTE: Only alumni and current students are eligible for the contest. The event begins with a reception at 6 p.m.
