Tabor College will welcome Beth Silvers on Monday, Oct. 26 in the Shari Flaming Performing Arts Center- Richert Auditorium. The topic for the lecture series is “Respecting Those Who May Be Wrong.”
Her morning talk will be on “Giving Grace in Difficult Relationships” and the evening lecture will be “Envisioning a Grace-filled America.”
She earned her juris doctorate from the University of Kentucky College of Law and her bachelor’s degree, summa cum laude, from Transylvania University. Slivers is the coauthor, with Sarah Stewart Holland, of “I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening),” published by Thomas Nelson in 2019. This work expresses practical tools to move past frustration and into productive dialogue, emphasizing that faith should inform the way people engage more than it does the outcome of that engagement.
Silvers owns and operates Checking In, a life and business coaching practice. Her professional experience includes 11 years with a large midwestern law firm as an attorney and human resources executive. She chairs the board of directors for the Ohio Justice and Policy Center, serves on the boards of directors for Beech Acres Parenting Center and Beyond Civility, and is a deacon at Florence Christian Church.
Silvers has been recognized as one of Ohio’s Most Powerful and Influential Women by the Ohio Diversity Council, a Human Resources Game Changer by Workforce Magazine, and one of Cincinnati’s Forty Under 40 business leaders.
“The key focus of her time here will be polarization and conflict in any context, and not primarily in the political sphere. She offers skills that can help us avoid losing the insights of people on all sides of a given issue,” said Douglas Miller, Tabor professor of biblical and religious studies.
