Mid-Atlantic Dialogue Across Difference
Urban Rural Action's Mid-Atlantic Dialogue Across Difference interactive Zoom workshops for college students will be held on Nov. 8, 2021 @ 11:30-1 EST and Nov. 10, 2021 @ 7-8:30 pm EST. Both workshops will follow the same format, and students can participate in either one (or both). The registration deadline is Oct 31.
The workshops are available ONLY to students at participating institutions (see right). Participants will have the opportunity to engage with students at other institutions who may have different lived experiences and perspectives.
An interactive Zoom workshop with the following flow:
1. A brief introduction to the ABCs for Constructive Dialogue, which help us deepen understanding and connection across difference
2. Moderated small-group breakout discussions with students from different institutions
3. Reflections on the experience
1. Raise your awareness about the assumptions people bring into conversations with people with perspectives different from theirs
2. Increase your understanding of different views on issues
3. Strengthen your skills for communicating across divides
4. Have fun!
