Zoom Meeting

Join Us!!! Welcome to the LAAHU DEI Hour of Power. 

The Vision of the LAAHU Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is the following: “LAAHU is a diverse community of health insurance and benefits professionals committed to equity and inclusiveness for all its members and those whom they serve.”  
Miles McPherson, "The Third Option"

Founder of The Rock Church in San Diego, speaks out about the pervasive racial divisions in today’s culture and argues that we must learn to see people not by the color of their skin, but as God sees them—humans created in the image of God.
The LAAHU DEI is launching a project based on Miles McPherson’s book, The Third Option. We think the author delivers just the right message for just the right time.

Around the basis of a book club, we would solicit to all those that would have the interest to use The Third Option book to develop in-depth discussions on our racially divided nation. We would meet monthly for an hour to an hour and a half expecting everyone to weigh in taking only about 3 chapters at a time. We would expect to finish around September. As a grand finale, we would all take a trip down to San Diego where our hopes would be to personally meet with Miles McPherson.

If you would like to participate you would need to commit to purchasing a copy of the book and meet monthly via Zoom. The book can be found on Amazon.

At the end of each chapter, there are 3-4 discussion questions to be considered that relate to that chapters’ content. We will be using this for the basis of our conversation.
You can also expect for a few of the meetings that we have a guest visit with us for 10-15 minutes. 

Additionally, we will have a drawing for prizes at each meeting.

Meeting Agenda

  • Start with current topics of the day (10 minutes)
  • Quick review from last month (5 minutes)
  • List the questions to be answered – found at the end of each chapter (5 minutes)
  • Break Out Rooms – 5 people per room – select a spokesperson (25 minutes)
  • Back to the main where the Spokesperson will share for each group (20 minutes)
  • Conclusion (5 minutes)
Hope you will take a leap of faith with us on our DEI journey to fully embrace God’s creativity and beauty, as expressed in the diversity of all people.

Thank you to our meeting sponsor!
