The World Hindu Council of America has announced that it will hold a three-day conference here from November 1-3, 2019. The purpose of the event is two-fold: exploring and chronicling the contributions of Hindus to America and, paying tribute to the largesse of America and its warm embrace of Hindus.
WHC’s conference ‘Threads 2019: Share, Appreciate and Engage-To Shape a Collective Future’ will bring together a community that is maturing and making its mark every day in America. Speakers who are leaders, scholars and leading lights in various aspects of life – philanthropy, science, arts, technology, media, business, medicine and academia – will narrate their story so each thread can be picked up and woven into a fabric that tells the larger tale of the impact of Hindus on American society.
Conference Convener Dr.Jai Bansal said, “The aim is also to look forward. We are bringing together people in one place so they can meet and engage in a way that ideas for a roadmap for the community, on how to keep gainfully contributing to America will emerge.”
Attendees will be treated to a wealth of details which will inform, empower and nurture. The conference will cover a broad range of topics: Science and Technology, Arts and Literature, Holistic Living, Education, Medicine, Industry and Commerce, Public Service and Advocacy, Service and Philanthropy. There will also be lightening talks on unique ideas, projects and poster presentations.
The three-day conference welcomes people from all disciplines, denominations and cultures who seek a deeper understanding of the Hindu-American narrative. Registration is open at:www.threads2019.org.
