    Session Dates & Topics

    Tuesday, January 19 @ 7:00 PM
    Local Black History

    What drove us to participate in Conversations Matter? What do we know about racism, Black history and the key moments in our history which formed how we live today? What do we want to learn?

    We seek to understand the experience of people of color throughout our local history and how that has shaped where we are today. Elijah Wheeler, Executive Director of the Montgomery County Collaboration Council, leads a panel conversation with Dr. Philip J. Merrill and Shellee Haynesworth.

    Tuesday, January 26 @ 7:00 PM
    Race X Disability

    People of color and people with disabilities are faced with too many similar injustices. Find a person of color who also has disabilities, and we can see that the hurdles and roadblocks they experience are exacerbated.

    How can we expand opportunities so we can all achieve our goals, aspirations, and dreams? What can we do to support our peers, loved ones, friends and co-workers with dignity and respect? Tatiana Lee, an actress and Communications Fellow from RespectAbility, and artist and disability champion, Lachi join us for this session.

    Tuesday, February 2 @ 5:15 PM
    Taking Action

    “I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.” – Angela Davis

    In the search for answers, we often find more questions. What can we do? Where can we do it? When should we start? How else can we get involved? Connections made through Conversations Matter can be a resource to propel you to action.

    This inspiring session will be led by noted speaker, facilitator, trainer and activist in the areas of diversity, equity, and social justice and Head of School for Sandy Spring Friends School, Rodney Glasgow.

    Tuesday, February 9 @ 7:00 PM
    Sustain the Change

    Our willingness to ask questions and seek answers is a powerful tool in creating and sustaining change. It’s time to debrief, unpack, and use all that energy to power up momentum. We hope you will leave the series as an informed community member and better neighbor with a desire to continue engaging in complex conversations.

    These complex conversations that matter will be led by two of our key thought partners, Dara Feldman of Virtues Matter and Donte Brown of Donte’s Boxing & Wellness Foundation. We will also be joined by Barbara Talley, poet, speaker, mindfulness leader and relative of Harriet Tubman.

  • Building Racial Justice Through Health

    January 28, 2021  1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    Montgomery College Presidential Dialogue Series:

    "Building Racial Justice Through Health"

    The COVID-19 pandemic has drawn renewed attention to health disparities in our nation. While African Americans are only 30 percent of the population of Maryland, they make up 50 percent of COVID fatalities. Vulnerability to infectious diseases often correlates with social variables such as income inequality, access to affordable health care, housing, and transportation.

    Montgomery County Health Officer Dr. Travis Gayles discusses with Montgomery College President Dr. DeRionne Pollard the community’s response to the pandemic, delivering urgent messages to the community about transmission, treatment and vaccination.

    The public is asked to submit any questions or concerns they would like to have addressed by Dr. Pollard and Dr. Gayles by January 25th to: presidentialdialogue@montgomerycollege.edu

    The discussion will be broadcast live on Facebook Live and YouTube.

  • GreenScapes Symposium - Back to Our Roots: Leveraging Native Plants to Restore the Environment

    February 19, 2021  9:30 pm - February 20, 2021  4:00 am
    Virtual Event

    Years of rapid urbanization have fragmented natural habitats with manicured lawns and barren over-development leading to significant declines in biodiversity. How can you reverse this alarming trend? Join us for a fascinating day of innovative presentations that dig deep into how native plants can restore natural ecosystems in a range of landscapes, from backyards and public gardens to urban and commercial projects.

    Experts will tackle the native vs. non-native plant debate: Is a native plant-only prescription necessary? Under what conditions should non-native plants be incorporated, and what are the risks of using cultivars? Join the conversation as experts assess the scope of environmental benefits that native ecosystems create, such as decreasing pollution and fighting climate change.

    We will explore the latest strategies to combat pollinator population collapse, considering key factors like pollination syndromes, specialist pollinators, plant genetics and floral balance. Speakers will demonstrate the latest tools to assess the sustainability of sites, including best practices for evidence-based designs that maximize the ecological, social and economic benefits of native landscapes.

    This will be offered as a series of live online lectures with audience Q&A incorporated into the program. Each session will be recorded and a link to watch the symposium will be emailed to all participants.

  • GreenScapes Symposium - Back to Our Roots: Leveraging Native Plants to Restore the Environment

    February 19, 2021  9:30 pm - February 20, 2021  4:00 am
    Virtual Event

    Years of rapid urbanization have fragmented natural habitats with manicured lawns and barren over-development leading to significant declines in biodiversity. How can you reverse this alarming trend? Join us for a fascinating day of innovative presentations that dig deep into how native plants can restore natural ecosystems in a range of landscapes, from backyards and public gardens to urban and commercial projects.

    Experts will tackle the native vs. non-native plant debate: Is a native plant-only prescription necessary? Under what conditions should non-native plants be incorporated, and what are the risks of using cultivars? Join the conversation as experts assess the scope of environmental benefits that native ecosystems create, such as decreasing pollution and fighting climate change.

    We will explore the latest strategies to combat pollinator population collapse, considering key factors like pollination syndromes, specialist pollinators, plant genetics and floral balance. Speakers will demonstrate the latest tools to assess the sustainability of sites, including best practices for evidence-based designs that maximize the ecological, social and economic benefits of native landscapes.

    This will be offered as a series of live online lectures with audience Q&A incorporated into the program. Each session will be recorded and a link to watch the symposium will be emailed to all participants.
