Diversity Without Division: Introducing the Moral Courage Method of Communicating Across Divides

You'll learn to help people do these things:

  • View themselves and each other as more than "oppressed" and "oppressive" groups

  • Recognize that empathy is a smarter, more constructive, emotion than feeling offended

  • Create brave spaces for asking honest and unorthodox questions

  • Hear rather than fear different opinions, values, interpretations, and ideas

  • Draw the best from multiple perspectives to become innovative problem-solvers
