Walking the Line Without Crossing It

March 15, 2019

This workshop will challenge participants from varying social identities to consider the drivers of the visceral reactions that we have to issues which are important to us and conversely, those which are important to others.  We will then engage in dialogues which put into practice our ability to hear and be heard in difficult conversations. The sought outcome is greater understanding of varying perspectives and a commitment to conversations which are sustained over time.

Program Agenda:
*Introduction to Difficult Discussions
-Four lenses for understanding conflict and response to perceived bias
-Actually listening
-Communication Complications
*Activity on working towards a common language
*Activity to practice difficult discussions
