He has a master’s degree in social work from the University of South Carolina and was a Resident Fellow at Harvard University. He is the bestselling author of The Presidential Principles and has been featured in TIME magazine, Inc. magazine, the Wall St Journal, BBC News, NPR and on Good Morning America.

From playing SEC football and being the first African American in history elected to the South Carolina legislature from his district early in his career, to now working as a C-level executive for an academic health system and serving on multiple boards, he has spent his life helping people build diverse, high-performing teams and world-class leadership culture.

Immigrants Welcome: responding locally to global crises

Panel presentation moderated by Colleen Dempsey, Practice Associate on Friday, November 15

Recent years have brought more attention to immigration as a national, humanitarian issue. While the focus often turns to the southern border, social workers can make an impact here in Ohio. Attendees will leave this discussion with new ideas to provide culturally responsive social work services to immigrants in Ohio.
