Common Ground 2018; Marlon Primes Interview; Study Says Criticism Impacts New Fathers

Featured Audio

For a second year, Northeast Ohioans are being encouraged to pull up a chair and join a community conversation aimed at improving communities.  The Cleveland Foundation is expanding this year's Common Ground conversation into neighboring counties and building discussions around the question of "Why place matters?".   We'll discuss the scope of this year's Common Ground event, including mechanisms to move the ideas generated during the conversations from words to action.  Then, we'll meet the new president of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association and discuss his goal of improving diversity in the legal community here.  Plus, an Ohio State study finds criticism can negatively impact a new father's parenting involvement.

Guests: 

Stephanie Hicks Thompson, Marketing & Communications Officer, The Cleveland Foundation  
Shannon Strachan, Executive Assistant to Mayor, City of Lakewood  
Elle Adams, Program Director, City Rising Farm, Cleveland  
Marlon Primes, Assistant U.S. Attorney, President, Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association  
Lauren Altenburger, Ph.D., Study Lead Author, Family Researcher, The Ohio State University
