He has 20+ years of experience working in Africa, Europe, North America, and the Asia-Pacific gaining fluency in French and Swahili along with his native English. Holder of a doctorate in political science, and two master’s degrees in community development and conflict resolution, Adams focuses on the promotion of interreligious, intercultural, and inter-organizational respect and understanding. As a former Rotary Peace Fellow, Adams is primarily focused on promoting respect and understanding across cultural, religious, and organizational boundaries.

Panelist – Shakila T. Ahmad (Muslim) Ahmad is an enthusiastic community leader who dedicates herself to numerous civic and community causes, building peace and understanding for the last 25+ years. She serves as board chair for Cincinnati COMPASS and served five years as chair and president of the board at the
Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati (ICGC); the first woman to serve in this capacity at such an institution across the country. She simultaneously has had a professional career and served as the director of management at the Allergy & Asthma Specialty Center. Ahmad established ICGC’s Tours and Talks program to educate neighbors, law enforcement personnel, businesses, nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, the community and its leaders about Islam and Muslims. This education and outreach initiative has reached over 100,000 people in all its forms. She spearheaded the ‘A Visit to a Mosque in America’ educational DVD produced to increase understanding of Islam and the Muslim community in the United States. This award-winning short film has aired internationally and continues to be used in academia, business, faith communities, and law enforcement today as a resource. Ahmad established the Muslim Mothers Against Violence initiative, where she and other members created and distributed educational materials on nonviolence and bullying prevention, including a Bullying Prevention Guide which she co-authored. The guide is
available to educators and community organizations through www.ing.org. She is a dedicated supporter of interfaith and outreach efforts and has served as board chair of BRIDGES for a Just Community (formerly the National Conference of Christians and Jews) and subsequent human relations work under EquaSion. Though her groundbreaking work began prior to 9/11, she stepped up these efforts through law enforcement cultural competency and being instrumental in working to set up an FBI MultiCultural Advisory Task Force to better serve the needs of minority communities in their relationship with the FBI. She was recognized at the national level with the FBI Community Leadership award in Washington, D.C., by then FBI
director Robert Mueller. She continues this work to build peace and understanding. Ahmad has engaged in community organizations to be a key voice at the table which is often not represented. These include as a member of the Executive Committee to the IRL at Thomas More, University of Cincinnati Foundation, and Xavier University Board of Trustees.

Zola became the AJA’s second director in 1998, succeeding his teacher and mentor, Professor Jacob Rader Marcus (1896-1995), who founded the AJA in 1947. Under Zola’s leadership, the AJA’s renowned collection grew and the center’s dynamic array of programs is now housed in a world-class complex of three interconnected structures. Zola is widely recognized by colleagues as an innovator in his field, who has enlarged the public’s access to the AJA’s holdings and expanded The Marcus Center’s programmatic activities as he encouraged the institution to make use of 21st century technologies. Zola is also known as a historian of American Jewry who specializes in 19th-century American Judaism and the history of American Reform Judaism. He is the editor of The Marcus Center’s award-winning biannual publication, The American Jewish Archives Journal and has also published multiple volumes on American Jewish history and historical people/groups who have influenced Judaism in America. Professor Zola has also published dozens of scholarly articles and book reviews. In 2023, President Joe Biden appointed Zola to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, which

President Barack Obama appointed Zola on three separate occasions (2011, 2014, and 2017) to serve as a member of the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, an independent agency of the Federal government. From 2000 to 2005, Zola served as the chair of the congressionally recognized Commission for Commemorating 350 Years of American Jewish History, a consortium of leading research institutions established to promote the study of American Jewish history. In 2006, he became the first American Jewish historian to receive appointment to the Academic Advisory Council of the congressionally recognized Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission. In addition to these national activities, Zola has been recognized for his commitment to the
betterment of community life in Cincinnati, Ohio. In April of 2023, the Urban League of Greater Southwestern Ohio named Zola as one of its “Lion Honorees” for demonstrating a lifelong commitment to serving the community. In 2018, Thomas More University conferred a Doctor of Humane Letters degree, honoris causa, on Zola for his “dedication to the principles that are the foundation of our nation.” Lighthouse Youth Services of Cincinnati honored him with the “Beacon of Light Humanitarian Award” in 2016. In 2012, he received the “Distinguished Service
Award” from BRIDGES for a Just Community (formerly the National Conference of Christians and Jews). The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center honored him with the “Martin Luther King, Jr. Legacy Award” that same year. In recognition of his service to the citizens in the Greater Cincinnati metropolitan area, the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission honored Zola with the “Bishop Herbert Thompson, Jr. Outstanding Humanitarian Award” in 2009.
