Partnering to Change our Toxic Polarized Culture
An interactive experience featuring author and Professor Irshad Manjii
- Is it hard to talk with your friends, coworkers or family because you have different points of view?
- Do their facts match yours?
- Do you wonder if you can ever find enough common ground to have meaningful relationships?
- Should you stay engaged with those who have vastly different beliefs – and how can you do that with integrity?
Learn how to turn contentious issues into constructive conversations. Professor Manjii will lead a conversation about about the toxicity of win/lose debates, the liberating power of listening to learn rather than to win, and tips and tricks for standing your ground while creating common ground at the same time.
