Saturday Workshops and Speakers:


Saturday Morning Keynote Speaker - Liz Walker
Keynote speaker Liz Walker, Liz Walker is an award-winning television journalist, a documentary film producer, an entrepreneur and a humanitarian currently working in the war-torn country of Sudan. Liz is on the ministerial staff of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Jamaica Plain, where she works with young people. She is the founder and principal of The Walker Group LLC, Communications Specialists, focused on non-profit capacity building and corporate public engagement.

Principles of Objectivity: Presented by Dr. Elizabeth Thornton
Participants will explore the power of seeing things as they are, without projecting mental models, biases, and fears, in order to react appropriately to changing dynamics, make sound decisions, and improve relationships with others. The Principles of Objectivity is also used as an underlying framework for collaborative, “no shame-no blame” conversations about diversity and inclusion. In addition, it is used as a guiding principle for entrepreneurs to balance their inherent subjectivity and their passion for the venture with their ability to be objective. Thornton’s Objectivity is now featured in a weekly blog on Huffington Post and she is author of forthcoming book: Objectivity: The Power of Seeing Things as They Are.

Color Brave Action Workshop: Presented by Dr. Tina Opie
Participants will be guided through an interactive opportunity to assess how we can make Babson “Color Brave” as suggested in Mellody Hobson’s TED Talk. If you are a member of the external community, you will have the opportunity to consider how you can make your organization more “Color Brave”.

Circles of Influence: Presented by Dr. Wendy Murphy
Dr. Murphy’s research focuses on mentoring, developmental networks, identity, and the work-life interface. Specifically, she explores the mutual learning that occurs through nontraditional developmental relationships for the benefit of individuals and organizations. She is also interested in how positive relationships across the work-life interface facilitate career success.  Her book with Kathy Kram, Strategic Relationships at Work: Creating your circle of mentors, sponsors, and peers for success in business and life, applies the scholarship of mentoring to help everyone become an entrepreneurial protégé.

Innovation Journeys: Featuring Babson Alum Nyema Tubman '91
Nyema, a graduate of Babson College ('91), is a founder of Sundial Brands, Inc. After graduating Babson in 1991, Nyema worked to bring the healing traditions of African Black Soap and Shea Butter to global markets. Participants will hear about the entrepreneurial process and personal and professional journey of one of the nation’s well known natural consumer product companies, Sundial Brands.  Participants will gain insight into how the Babson experience fueled Nyema's success and prepared him to surmount challenges in a fast paced, rapidly growing economy. 

In addition to the afternoon keynote, we hope that you will consider the following ways to engage with the conference on both Friday and Saturday:
Coach a student or alumnae in regards to their entrepreneurial journey or career endeavors.
Contribute thoughts and ideas about how the college can be more intentional about race across the curriculum, campus and major constituents including alumni and friends.  If you are a member of the external community, consider how you can make your organization more “Color Brave”.
Share stories and thoughts around mental models regarding race and how they must change to achieve success.
Participate in a conversation about the complexities of networking and share success stories.
Hear young leaders discuss their current campus life and the projects and initiatives they are leading.
Mingle with Alumni, Staff and Faculty who are eager to discuss or discover Sundial’s unique brand and its impact socially and economically.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 8 P.M.
Carling-Sorenson Theater $

Doug Elkins is known for his exuberant, humorous, and innovative choreography, and he brings his versatile company to Babson for an evening that’s a dance-lover’s dream. In Hapless Bizarre, a company of dancers, actors, and clowns come together to explore the sharp intersections between physical comedy, choreography, flirtation, and romance. Mo(or)town/Redux transforms Shakespeare’s Othello into a dance with four characters set to music from Motown.

“One of the most musical, witty and inventive choreographers of his generation.”
— The New York Times
