Learning from Difficult Conversations as a Community

How can we engage in respectful conversation with people who hold different values in order to learn more about their perspective and our own? This was the central question of yesterday's Diversity Forum event. We began the event as a community in the Chapel where Shania Davis '20, Stewart DeLeon '19, and Ms. Devin led an introductory presentation. From there, students and faculty gathered into small groups and took time to reflect on how they might communicate more effectively and thoughtfully. At the program's conclusion, a representative of each group spoke in the Chapel about their most important takeaway from their discussions.
