Discussion: What Can We Learn From Madiba?

July 13, 2014

Imagine Bermuda is partnering with the Human Rights Commission, in organizing a Lunchtime Roundtable Discussion from 12.20pm – 1.30pm on Friday July 18th — the birthday of the late Nelson Mandela – at the Cathedral Hall on Church Street.

The Discussion’s theme is: “What can we learn from Madiba? How will we use his legacy to improve Bermuda’s Future?” The Roundtable will include ‘nutshell’ presentations from a diverse group of local residents; including:

  • Ottiwell Simmons, past President of the Bermuda Industrial Union, a former Member of Parliament who had been active in the local Anti-Apartheid Movement.
  • Dianna Kempe, past President of the International Bar Association during which time she provided some consultation to the Mandela Administration.
  • Tiffany Paynter, an activist who has facilitated the development of various non-governmental programs.
  • Stratton Hatfield, a community activist who has brought his skills to various local initiatives.
  • Glenn Fubler, a past-President of the Bermuda Union of Teachers, coordinator of local Anti-Apartheid Movement and Mediator.

This Roundtable will be chaired by the Executive Director of the Human Rights Commission, Lisa Lister Reed.

“This Global Icon while not a saint, has left a legacy which is most-widely regarded. The Human Family is characterized as being ‘Wise’, because of our ability to learn from the best examples that we offer each other. As our community faces any and all circumstances, this Roundtable offers an opportunity to reflect and to learn collectively,” a spokesperson said.
