WWU to host motivational, diversity speaker Thursday

Motivational speaker Bobby Gonzalez will give a talk at
William Woods University Thursday, Nov. 10, at 6 p.m. in Dulany Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
 
Sponsored by WWU’s Office of Multicultural Affairs, his
speech is intended to inspire the audience to think differently and become
enthusiastic about diverse cultures.
 
Born and raised in the South Bronx, New York City, Gonzalez grew
up in a bicultural environment. His roots are Native American and Latino, which
allow him to offer a unique repertoire of discourses, readings and performances
that celebrate his indigenous heritage.
 
Gonzalez is not only a motivational speaker, but he is also a
storyteller and poet. His outlook on life is exceptional and challenges his
audience to become more aware of cultural diversity. He is considered a dynamic
keynote speaker, specializing in encouraging audiences of all ages and
backgrounds to succeed and fulfill their full potential.
 
Urging his listeners to be more sensitive to the various
cultures and belief systems of their neighbors and colleagues, he also
helps draw a connection between his audience and their ancestors.
 
“Diversity is the one true thing we all have in common,” says
Gonzalez. “Celebrate it every day!”
