Multiculturism-Needed More Now Than Ever!

Multicultural issues and our understanding of those issues are becoming more critical. I found out today that a speaker collegue and expert in cultural diversity has been busy addressing some of the major multicultural issues via a collaboration with Universities and major businesses.

Well, you must know that Carole Copeland Thomas is a baby boomer woman  of class and distinction who has crossed the globe with her messages of cultural unity. Yet, she is not alone, there are others with the same message who are expanding into the social marketing arena to increase the scope of discussions. At some point I want to feature more of those experts. This will be my way of helping us all to work together and understand each other.

Carole Has Developed A Multicultural Symposium Series.

You can become  a member of the 2009 Multicultural Symposium Series and participate in the hottest multicultural movement of our time.  Now you, your organization, and your staff can stay connected to the latest developments in the field of multiculturalism, global diversity, and inclusion.

If you have been hanging out on this site you know how passionate I am about ABOUT pages. So here is a portion of the page which features the efforts of the Multicultural Symposium Series.

The Multicultural Symposium Series (MSS) will create new opportunities for academia, business, government, education, students, and the community at large to build new strategic alliances that will forge stronger relationships across the global divisions of ethnicity, race, gender, economics, age, religion, politics, class, and

ideological differences.

MSS Is A Collaborative Partnership with Bentley University

Carole Copeland Thomas of C. Thomas & Associates has formed a strategic partnership with Bentley College to produce a twice-yearly

Multicultural Symposium Series and other related activities at Bentley University.


Reinforce cultural bridges

Strengthen retention and recruitment efforts within business, education,

and non-profit organizations

Create new dialogue within the multicultural community and beyond

Bridge the gap between academia, business, government, education,

healthcare,  students, and community groups

Provide an ongoing platform for cross cultural exchange, conversation,

ideas, and partnerships

What Makes This Unique:

An Ongoing Dialogue With Global Communication

Between Each Symposium

Unlike most conventions and conferences held on an annual basis, this initiative will be different from the start.  Ongoing dialogue will be developed so that each symposium will NOT be a stand alone event.

Each event will be interconnected to the total framework of the Symposium Series.

Ongoing Activities Linked To Each Other

Each symposium will build on the strength of the previous events by using technological resources:

• An Interactive Website with Social Networking Capabilities

• Electronic Newsletter

• List Serv Creation For A Virtual Online Community

• Teleconference Series on Key Topics

• Webinar Series On Multicultural Issues

• Focus Groups

• Other relevant communication instruments

• Projected initial online community  3000-5000 participants

• Four Color Print Magazine (2011-2012)

Catch The Remaining Webinars

There are still a few remaining webinars scheduled for this month that you can view. But the earlier webinars are also still available. So if you are serious about the issues related to multiculturism than spend some time participating in some of the efforts of this exception symposium.

Note, that Carole’s contact information is also available so you can chat with her yourself.

Art Instructor Ray Horner’s Class Creatively Celebrates Earth Day

Earth Day is celebrated in different ways. Baby Boomer Artist and Instructor Ray Horner posted a picture of one of his student’s creation last night.  This work was created using the same pulp board coffee carrying containers that are often thrown in the trash.

But, Ray collects these containers and brings them to his class with an assignment to create something of artistic value. How Cool!

Kudos to you Ray Horner Jr.

Can You Really Add Value To Your Twitter Tweets?

So do you think you can really add value to your Twitter Tweets? Okay, I know some of you are not on Twitter yet but have been educated enough from TV, news and other boomer friends. Many folks have mixed feelings or just plain cannot see any value.

If you read this article by the great team at Twitter Power System I think you will be quite pleased with the answer. If not please let us know.
