2014 Spartanburg Future Leaders Dialogue Dinner

 Converse College, Wofford College and USC Upstate students and faculty gathered together at Converse College on November 13th for their Second Annual Future Leaders of Dialogue Dinner. The Theme "Kindness without Borders: Open Eyes, Open Hearts in Our Global Village was the theme for the discussion on this evening.

All of the students and faculty discussed preset questions for the evening that encouraged dialogue around the topic. The two Guest Speakers, Students Laura Kate Gamble from Wofford and Mary Roylston from Converse, spoke about their experiences traveling abroad working with other foundations and living immersed in other cultures and helped open the eyes of the students in attendance.

One of the student attendees said:"I really enjoyed it, and it definitely opened my eyes to things I have not really thought about "

Congratulations to the student winners that will be accompanying us to the Capital on Feb. 3rd:

Clemson FLDD,  2014

What a great dialogue dinner! Atlantic Institute has organized its Annual Future Leaders Dialogue Dinner of Clemson on November 11th at Southern Wesleyan University. We were very fortunate to be able to spend an evening gaining a little insight into other cultures and having some great discussion about what it means to have kindness without borders. Thank you again to our speakers, Caroline Hudson, Emilia Urban, and Colby Cash for sharing their experiences and giving us a look into life in the Ukraine, Turkey, and Haiti.

Discussion continued throughout the dinner. Some of the topics discussed at the tables are "What is your culture's one thing you want to share with others?", and "What would you do ,if you were young, to share your culture with others and see others'?" After the panel discussion , each moderator from every table expresses their table's ideas to increase dialogue among different people. Maybe the most interesting answer for the second question was "Go!, Just Go!"

Students were seemed to excited to go to SC Senate House, a part of the Future Leaders Dialogue Dinners, after watching short video of the Senate House Trip from last year.

Lucky ones among our guests to attend this year trip were chosen by ruffle and they are Janay Crosland, Assatta Herbert and Chad Smith from Clemson University, Nina Ivankovic and Devan Fisher from Anderson University.
