Location

Description

This Community Conversation will provide tools and ideas for consideration when we are navigating a space with those we disagree with.  Speakers will explore navigating polarizing topics and finding the balance between tolerating difference and potentially providing implicit support to ideas that may be dangerous or leave community members feeling isolated or marginalized.  Thoughtfully and carefully navigating challenging topics like climate change, war, poverty, gun violence, an ongoing pandemic, intractable racism, provider shortages and healthcare disparities can make our lives and our work more difficult — but also make our work more important, meaningful and impactful.

Speakers include:

Julia Minson, Ph.D., associate professor of public policy, Harvard Kennedy School

Kevin Hawkins, commissioner, Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service
