The Session
Leaders are often called upon to facilitate meaningful, civil, and sometimes difficult conversations. Come to this workshop to learn about why such conversations are as important as ever, and experience how they can be structured to encourage open and inclusive dialogue. This workshop is relevant for students working with teams and communities and anyone wanting to learn more about effective communication in challenging spaces. Join us in this highly interactive session that will include a facilitated courageous conversation and tools for doing this in other spaces.
