Tools for Intergroup Dialogue & Building Empathy

Mar 10, 2022

10:30am – 12:00pm CT

How do we create conversational structures that allow students to talk about challenging topics? How do we center marginalized voices in the process? What can we do if a heated discussion goes off the rails? In this session, participants will learn how equity and inclusion educators at Stanford University and UC Berkeley use constructive discomfort and experiential learning tools for facilitating difficult conversations across difference and building empathy in students.
