SAVE THE DATE - Conflict Resolution Day
A MAM Event - October 21, 2021 - 3:00 - 4:30 PM via ZOOM
Dialogue Across Difference in an Era of Polarization
During a period of intense political polarization, it’s easy to lose sight of our commonality. This session challenges the status quo and shares resources for a more collaborative future among families, friends, teammates, co-workers, and colleagues, and politicians by examining what causes conflict to persist in this environment, by highlighting what’s possible when we speak bravely across difference, and by exploring the role mediators might play in compensated or pro-bono formats to help our communities have the critical conversations needed to restore our faith in each other and in the democratic process. All who want to be part of the solution are welcome and encouraged to attend as we collectively seek an alternative path forward – whether at home, among friends, at work, or in other arenas impacted by the divisiveness of our time.
