Register now for this workshop:  “Diversity without Dogma” with Gilmore Crosby

Sunday, October 1, 2023, 12:00-1:30 p.m.

Social Scientist Kurt Lewin, a Jewish man born and raised in Germany until he fled to the US in the 1930s, did groundbreaking training-action-research (as he put it) on what he called “minority relationships.” His methods demonstrated the power of group dynamics, local action, the inclusion of all willing to be included, and how to change inaccurate beliefs such as prejudice. His methods worked, and there is no good reason we can’t apply them in the present.

That is the thesis of Gilmore Crosby’s new book, Diversity without Dogma. Gilmore Crosby has been a Social Scientist and Organization Development (OD) practitioner since 1984. His mission is to better the world by spreading Kurt Lewin’s methods. Crosby guides us in understanding and applying Lewin’s universal theory of social science, including leadership, group dynamics, the social construction of reality, minority relations, re-education, and field theory. Gilmore Cosby is the author of six books, with the most recent being Diversity without Dogma: A Collaborative Approach to DEI learning and Action. Mr. Crosby gives thanks that he is a husband, a father, and a grandfather. His marriage is cross-cultural.
