Our speaker will be Taurean Webb!

Taurean J. Webb self-identifies as an activist-scholar, teacher and former youth pastor, specializing in “coalition training” for and within faith-based communities. Since 2012, Webb has trained congregations, activist groups, community centers (such as YWCAs) and high schools, domestically and globally, on how to organize and build sustainable relationships, across various categories of difference. Specifically, in his coalition training work, Webb offers short-term (1-day, 3-day, weeklong), longer-term (1-2 month) and custom workshops around issues such as interracial and interfaith coalition-building, diversity and inclusion, implicit bias, white privilege and others subject areas. Though not all of his work is faith-based, to Webb, organizing for social change—and expanding the ways that communities are able to think about God—are paramount to the Christian faith commission. In other words, he has an affinity for engaging the work of justice and social change within communities of faith, in particular.

Webb is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Morehouse College (Atlanta, GA), having also completed masters degrees at Columbia University (NY) and Northwestern University (IL), respectively. He is currently completing a certificate in Philanthropy and Non-Profit Management at Northwestern University and concluding his PhD dissertation at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary (Evanston, IL) in the field of Theology and Ethics.

Webb serves as the Director of the Center for the Church and the Black Experience and Instructor of Religion & Race at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. He lives in Chicago, Il with his wife and daughter.
