In years past, we’ve brought you panel discussions from the Allen County Bar Association and the Allen County Bar Foundation. This week, we are going to hear voices from an event recorded last week called “An Uncomfortable Conversation on Race.”

The show features three distinct elements in the time we have. First we will hear poetry by Elizabeth Alexander read by Jasmine Barnes, a junior at Homestead High School. Then we’ll hear from Gina Forrest, chief culture officer at Aspire Indiana Health. The final part of our program will be a panel discussion moderated by Patti Hays, CEO of AWS Foundation and co-founder of Advancing Voices of Women. The three panelists are Marlon Wardlow, senior vice president of equity and inclusion at Parkview Health, Nikki Quintana, executive director of the Fort Wayne Metropolitan Human Relations Commission, and Rick Hawks, pastor at The Chapel.
