Maria Dixon Hall manages the Campus Cultural Intelligence program at Southern Methodist University. She has a background in multiple disciplines, having earned a masters of divinity, a masters of theology, and a PhD in Organizational Communication and Religion. Her work in cultural intelligence differs from the typical diversity training that’s done on college campuses, and as you’ll hear, it has received both positive and negative media coverage.

Maria will be a panelist at the 2019 Heterodox Academy conference in New York City on June 20 and 21. Registration for the conference is open now — register here!
