Common Ground Speaker Series

Common Ground Speaker Series is a coalition of Bay Area schools that have joined together to provide parent education to their communities. The coalition provides opportunities for parents to learn from nationally-acclaimed experts in the fields of education and parenting, to share ideas with other parents and to support each other’s efforts to enrich our school communities.

Bellarmine is proud to be a supporting member of the coalition and invites parents and faculty to attend events at a location convenient for you. All Common Ground Speaker Series events are free of charge to member schools.

More information is available on the Common Ground Speaker Series website.

Upcoming Speaker

Emotional Agility
Susan David, PhD

Drawing on her extensive research, consultancy, and her own experiences, author of the highly acclaimed best-selling book Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life, Dr. Susan David will show how anyone can thrive in an uncertain world by becoming emotionally agile. Emotional agility is a roadmap for real behavioral change. By facing emotions and thoughts courageously and compassionately, with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness and an open mind, anyone can become unstuck, embrace change and move forward. Dr. David will be speaking about emotional agility and emotional intelligence as significant drivers of learning, creativity and well-being in children, and how these skills are best developed in school and at home.

Dr. Susan David is an award-winning developmental psychologist on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, the co-founder and co-director of the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital, and CEO of Evidence Based Psychology, a business consultancy. She has been featured in numerous publications, including The New York Times and The Washington Post. Dr. David is also on the faculty of Homeward Bound, a global program aimed at increasing the influence and impact of women in the sciences, and which culminates in an all-women expedition to Antarctica..
