Plenary Speakers

IAPCHE and the CCCU are thrilled to host the following two plenary speakers at the upcoming conference:



DR. RUTH PADILLA DE BORST

Pulling the sticks out of our ears:
re-casting our categories so the sun can come up

 


 

Description

Beginning with an old West African Fable, this plenary session invites participants to identify the “sticks in their ears” that impede them from truly listening across social, ethnic and cultural barriers. It challenges the assumptions that “might makes right” and that the construction of knowledge is indifferent to context. Finally, it proposes respect for emic (internal/self) definitions and categories as an essential posture if internationalization is to cross borders in all directions and not simply from power to non-power.

Schedule

4:30-5:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 4, 2017 (see schedule)

DR. FAITH WAMBURA NGUNJIRI

Listen. Learn. Lead: Leveraging Margins and Intersections

 


 

Description

Weaving together her personal experiences as an African, Black, immigrant, female, Christian professor; her professional experiences teaching ethics, global leadership, servant leadership, and spiritual leadership as well as directing a center for faith and work in a predominantly white institutional context; plus her spiritual intuitions and rumination, Dr Ngunjiri will derive lessons on listening to learn in order to lead from the intersections of identities and roles, and paying attention to those at the margins. 

Schedule

9:00-10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 6, 2017 (see schedule)
