一个庆典 of Diversity and Inclusion

Lindenwood’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Task Force, in partnership with the Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) hosted the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 领导 Award Ceremony and rededication of the CDI Ribbon Cutting Tuesday, February 22 in the Spellmann Center.

的 event began with opening remarks from Lindenwood 总统, Dr. John Porter and then transitioned to the awards.

的 Martin Luther King Jr. 领导 Awards were presented by Dr. Amanda Harrod and Mr. Myron Burr, co-chairs of the DEI Task Force. Five awards were given out to various faculty, 工作人员, 学生, and community members who embody the spirit of Dr. King's work through positive impacts on the Lindenwood community.

Guests were treated to a live music performance and St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney and Lindenwood Alum, Wesley Bell was this year’s keynote speaker.

Bell spoke about his experience at Lindenwood, how it set him up for success in life, and the impact of Dr. 国王的工作. He also discussed the ongoing struggles of poverty and lack of inclusion in the country and how the criminal justice system affects those individuals.

“We cannot ignore the role that poverty and lack of inclusion plays and even in our criminal justice system and the way in which we perpetuate poverty in that system,“贝尔说. He also referenced a favorite quote, in which King said, “True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it understands that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.”

Bell’s call for systemic changes was the center point of his keynote. “Not only do these practices harm individuals and families, they harm communities, they harm economic progress of our entire region. 就在这里. Louis we’ve seen these practices exposed and I want to applaud the work that is happening to reform this system,”贝尔说.
