Understanding the consequences of injustice, and gaining insights to being our most authentic and open-minded selves.
Time & Location

About the Event
One Community is honored to partner with Glenbard Parent Series (GPS) in bringing the story of Julie Lycoth-Haims. Her insights will engage audiences in meaningful conversations about the consequences of injustice, and inspire listeners to be their most authentic and open-minded selves.
Julie is a former corporate lawyer and Stanford Dean. She holds a BA from Stanford University, a JD from Harvard University, and an MFA in Writing from California College of the Arts. “The only child of a marriage between an African-American father and a white British mother, Julie shows how microaggressions, discrimination, and outright racism can puncture a person’s inner life with a thousand sharp cuts. In sharing her path to self-acceptance, she also expresses the healing power of community in overcoming the hurtful isolation of being incessantly considered “the other.” Julie’s story is deeply personal, but its message is universal: people from marginalized communities will recognize echoes of their own experiences, and allies will learn how they can better show up, listen, and advocate for others.”
