Fostering Understanding and Building Relationships across Racial Lines

February 19, 2016


Miller & Martin hosts Franklin McCallie and Dr. Linda Wiley as they address the topic of diversity and race relations. These close friends, dynamic individuals and nationally recognized professionals regularly speak about their passion for building meaningful relationships between black and white citizens. Both deeply committed to changing the way individuals interact with one another through intentional acts of developing genuine interracial friendships; they share how to take action to shift thinking and creating important relationships, and how this can impact societies.

"We continue to experience sobering reminders that strained race relations plague this country," said James Haley, Miller & Martin chairman. "We are pleased to play a role in the conversation as to how this national problem can be improved by courageous outreach efforts at the local level."

Franklin McCallie, garnering national attention for his in-home, interracial gatherings and founder of Chattanooga Connected, and Dr. Linda Wiley, accomplished speaker, author and business leader, specializes in diversity and inclusion and relationship management.
