Benedictine Perspectives on DEIJ 
February 2-3, 2022

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, February 2 and Thursday, February 3 to attend, or have your students attend, one or more presentations regarding Benedictine Perspectives on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Justice (DEIJ).  All presentations will focus on helping “non-experts” understand what it can look like to approach DEIJ issues from a Benedictine point of view.  Guest speakers include Nicholas Tangen, Cindy Gonzalez, and Eric LeCompte.  Tangen is a writer, coach, educator, and congregational organizer in Minneapolis.  His work focuses on community life, community organizing, social action, and the life of faith through a Benedictine lens.  Gonzalez is a 2014 graduate of the College of Saint Benedict and a 2019 graduate of Saint John’s School of Theology.  She recently spoke for the 2021 Diocesan Ministry Day celebration focusing on “the importance of co-creating a community that sees, listens, and advocates for one another.”  LeCompte is a 1999 alumnus of Saint John’s University and for more than 25 years had led religious groups in the fight to alleviate poverty, address global conflict, and promote human rights. 

Bazan graduated from the School of Theology in 2017 and works for the Collegeville Institute.  Jessie is passionate about social justice issues, especially related to women, church life, and young adults.
