On Monday, March 4, the Andreas Center and Dordt College will welcome Christina Edmondson for the First Mondays Speaker Series, at 11 a.m. in the B.J. Haan Auditorium. Her morning presentation is titled “Can Rotten Roots Be Redeemed?: The Myth of Moral Progress.” In the evening, Edmondson will host a workshop, “How to Create Inclusive Leadership,” at 7:30 p.m. in SB 2736.
Christina Edmondson is a higher education professional and intercultural development facilitator. She serves as the Dean of the Intercultural Student Development Center at Calvin College and writes about discipleship, anti-racism, cultural humility and servant leadership. Her work has been seen and referenced in a variety of outlets including Essence.com, The Witness-Black Christian Collective, The Twelve, Perspectives Journal, and Gospel Today magazine. She is one of the hosts of Truth’s Table, a podcast that centers the voices of black Christian women exploring faith, justice, and culture.
The First Mondays Speaker Series brings scholars, writers, and cultural leaders to Dordt College to pursue the common good in society and the church. It is designed to enrich the academic experience and promote Dordt's mission: equipping students, alumni, and the broader community to effect Christ-centered renewal in everyday life.
Both events are free and open to the public. The evening workshop has limited seating, so please RSVP.
