Speaker Series Lineup
Join us on Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. CDT for Dr. Tania Israel as she speaks on Bridging the Political Divide: Optimism for Moving Beyond Polarization.
Political polarization in the U.S. is at a record high. As anger, fear, distortions, and social media drive the wedge ever deeper, what hope is there for maintaining connection within families, friendships, workplaces, and communities? Dr. Israel can offer solutions. Grounded in evidence, experience, and skills, she will share practical and research-based strategies to help bridge the political divide.
On Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. CST, Lindsay Boccardo will join our series to speak on Brave Relationships.
Invite people into your life who challenge you, love you fiercely and keep you focused on what matters. Together, we’ll talk about the people we all need around us if we are going to lead a purposeful life. You will walk away with an understanding of the four skills you need to build strong, lasting friendships.
America’s Government Teacher and Host of Government for Grownups, Sharon McMahon will focus on how listening to understand doesn’t obligate you to agree; harnessing the power of listening to people we disagree with, and how it can help bridge divides, and then how we can use this power to take effective action in local communities on March 15 at 7 p.m. CST.
