Webinar: How Dialogue Can Help Bridge Unbridgeable Divides

Join Mediators Beyond Borders International in a conversation on It’s Not Our Differences that Divide Us…How Dialogue Can Help Bridge Unbridgeable Divides?  by Dave Joseph on Tuesday, April 30, 2019, at 2 PM ETThis webinar will reflect on how dialogue can help promote coexistence, connection, mutual respect and understanding in a broad variety of settings.

Drawing upon his dialogue work in Nigeria, Liberia, Burundi, Greece, Thailand, and the US, Dave will focus on bridging differences of identity (religion, ethnicity, race, gender, etc.), as well as political and ideological differences. The webinar will address the capacity of dialogue to promote the re-humanization of the “Other,” reduce/minimize stereotypes, demonization, and address issues of power differences; and what dialogue can and cannot do; when it may be a useful tool in the practitioner’s toolbox.  This webinar will also address the personal qualities and characteristics of the facilitator.

Takeaways will include greater awareness of the key roles of each of the following in dialogue:

  • Clarity and unity of purpose
  • Structures that promote reflection
  • Community/communication agreements
  • Preparation
  • Reflection
  • Inquiry
