Event Description:

Gerald Horne, Ph.D., holds the John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston. He earned a bachelor’s degree at Princeton, a Ph.D. at Columbia University and a J.D. at the University of California, Berkeley. He served as chair of the Black Studies Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Horne held joint appointments with Communications Studies, the African and Afro-American Studies graduate program, and as director of the Black Cultural Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The late Manning Marable said, “Gerald Horne is one of the most gifted and insightful historians on racial matters of his generation.” Diane Fujino, director of the Center for Black Studies Research, said, “His work—on influential but overlooked historic figures, organizations, movements—has opened up whole fields of research and reshaped scholarly and public discussions of race, labor and global relations. His writings are daring and provocative in that they present perspectives that contest the mainstream narrative but, they are always based on extensive research.” Nikhil Pal Singh said, “He also makes an indispensable contribution to writing global history from the bottom up.”

Horne is the author of more than 30 books and 100 scholarly articles and reviews. He is a frequent contributor to Political Affairs, The Journal of African American History, Souls, Africana Studies, and the Journal of Latin American Studies, the Black Agenda Report, and Democracy Now. He has also served on the editorial boards of Science and Society and Race and Class.

Edgar H. Schein, Ph.D.
"Humble Consulting: How to Provide Real Help Faster"

Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

"Consulting in Complex and Changing Times" Organizations face challenges today that are too messy and complicated for consultants to simply play doctor and run a few tests, offer a neat diagnosis of the "problem" and recommend a solution. Schein argues that consultants have to jettison the old idea of professional distance and work with their clients in a more personal way, emphasizing authentic openness, curiosity and humility. Schein draws deeply on his own decades of experience, offering more than two dozen case studies that illuminate each stage of this humble consulting process. Just as he did with “Process Consultation” nearly 50 years ago, Schein has once again revolutionized the field, enabling consultants to be more genuinely helpful and vastly more effective.

Schein is the Society of Sloan Fellows Professor of Management Emeritus at the MIT Sloan School of Management. He has been a prolific researcher, writer, teacher and consultant. His work focuses on organizational culture, process consultation, research process, career dynamics, and organization learning and change. Schein has authored 14 books, including "Organizational Culture and Leadership" (2010), "Process Consultation Revisited" (1999), "Helping" (2009), and "Corporate Culture Survival Guide" (2009), in addition to numerous articles in professional journals. A recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award as Scholar/Practitioner from the Academy of Management in 2009, Schein also received the Lifetime Achievement Award in Workplace Learning and Performance from the American Society of Training Directors (2000) and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Leadership Association (2012). A graduate of the University of Chicago, Schein earned a master’s degree in Psychology at Stanford University and a Ph.D. in Social Psychology at Harvard University in 1952.

This event is free and open to the public.
