The Marie Fielder Center for Democracy, Leadership, and Education at Fielding Graduate University invites you to attend a Women’s History Month event honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Marie Fielder.
The event will be on March 28 at 2 pm Pacific Time/5 pm Eastern Time.
Dr. Marie Fielder
Dr. Fielder devoted her career to promoting equitable education and justice. She facilitated interracial community dialogues in the aftermath of the Birmingham Church Bombings in 1963 and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968 in an effort to de-escalate violence and promote community healing. During the 1970s, she was involved with the Black Panther Party. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, she worked as a diversity, equity, and inclusion consultant for corporations, including Merrill Lynch and Intuit Corporation. She also assisted the Berkeley, Los Angeles, and New York Police Departments with improving race relations. Dr. Fielder supported NASA’s Office of Equal Opportunity Programs in the development of its affirmative action plan.
Marie Fielder Center for Democracy, Leadership, and Education was established in 2016 to honor the legacy and work of Dr. Fielder by encouraging research that addresses today’s educational and social problems. Today, the Center is a research and activism organization that partners with scholars, practitioners, and organizations to advance democracy, leadership, and education.
During our virtual gathering, Jenny Johnson-Riley, Ph.D., will provide an overview of the forthcoming monograph on the life of Dr. Fielder. We will also hear from the Fielder Fellows, Susan Eddington, Ph.D., Greg Williams, Ph.D., Zabrina Epps, Ph.D., Wendy Mulhauser, Ed.D, and Robin Treptow, Ph.D. Each Fellow will share highlights from their current projects, which illustrate how the vision of Dr. Fielder continues at Fielding.
