Informed by research about how to unify people in polarized times, Diversity Without Division achieves behavioral, not cosmetic, outcomes.

SUCCESS MEANS that all participants will develop these skills:

  • How to reduce anxiety when entering conversations that could be contentious.
     

  • How to build trust with those who have dramatically different perspectives.
     

  • How to ask questions that are sincere rather than judgmental.
     

  • How to listen authentically — i.e. to understand instead of to “win.”
     

  • How to deal with someone who doesn't have these skills or won't use them.

  •  

  • How to leverage these skills for greater impact.


Expect these outcomes for the culture of your organization or community:

  • Increased motivation among people to learn from each other.

Deeper listening and more willingness to hear divergent views.

Wider adoption of healthy ways to disagree.
