The Roaring Fork Cultural Council is pleased to bring Marilyn Tam, Ph.D. to Thunder River Theatre at 7 p.m. June 7. Marilyn’s topic of discussion will be “Diversity: How to Reap the Rich Harvest of Culture, Creativity and Community.” She believes that learning how to benefit from diversity and be a leader in a more diverse and global world is both a challenge and an opportunity. Embracing and leveraging diversity is the only way to prosper and grow in the 21st century. Join us for this timely community conversation. You can buy tickets

Marilyn Tam is a speaker, author, consultant, board certified executive/corporate/leadership coach, and founder and executive director of the Us Foundation. She was formerly the CEO of Aveda Corp., president of Reebok Apparel and Retail Group; vice president of Nike Inc., and also a successful entrepreneur who has developed and built four companies.

Joining Marilyn will be her friend and world renowned cellist Michael Fitzpatrick. RFCC director Dr. Debra Winston will be moderating. Visit and go to the Roaring Fork Cultural Council page to learn more about Tam, Fitzpatrick, the Roaring Fork Cultural Council, and founder Jim Calaway’s dream for the organization.

Originally set up under TRTC’s nonprofit 501c3 status, the RFCC has become a TRTC Program. Jim Calaway’s desire to bring the two organizations together was primarily so the RFCC could provide more diversity in its offerings. Jim Calaway will continue to invite three to four illustrious speakers a year in all areas of world affairs. TRTC will be inviting two to three cultural arts speakers who are on the forefront of contemporary culture and art, as well as some special performances. Marilyn is TRTC’s first invited guest.

Tickets are $20 ticket. More information is available at or by calling 970-618-0954. TRTC is located at 67 Promenade, Carbondale (on the Red Brick Walkway, between Main and Colorado Avenue and Fourth and Sixth Street).
