Ethnic Diversity Alliance Plans Summit

Something very important is happening here in West Michigan this summer.

The Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance is holding a Summit on race and inclusion.  It will be June 5th at Hope College, and it’s open to ALL.

It is extremely important that West Michigan understands the moral and economic need to respect and welcome people from diverse backgrounds by being an inclusive region.  In West Michigan, we know it is critical that we educate all of our children, provide economic opportunity for all talent, and ensure everyone is welcome to participate fully in our community.  But, we remain stuck.  The question is, how do we achieve this elusive, inclusive community?

The Alliance hopes that this Summit will provide participants with a framework for understanding.

Along with numerous breakout sessions, there are two Keynote Speakers.

Morning Keynote
How the four levels of bias manifest and interact within our society: internalized, interpersonal, institutional, and structural.

Terry Keleher, Director of the Midwest Office of the Applied Research Center and Program Director of the Racial Justice Leadership Action Network. He’s authored many publications, developed curricula and is a writer at

Afternoon Keynote
How faith-based communities have a critical role in advancing and promoting inclusion.

Dr. David Anderson, Founder and President of the BridgeLeader Network, a leading authority on building bridges across deep divides. He hosts the second most- listened-to Christian Talk radio show in the nation, Afternoons with Dr. Anderson.
