Diversity Without Division™ reconciles social justice and free speech in three unique ways:
Social justice and free speech are treated as opposites on many higher ed campuses.
THEY'RE COMPATIBLE, actually.
DWD rejects crude binaries. Informed by the science of bridging differences, our pedagogy replaces the either/or frame with the both/and lens.
DWD embraces individuality (not individualism). Each of us has a unique back story even as we identify with certain groups.
DWD defines "diversity" to include diversity of viewpoint. We recognize that divergent opinions and ideas exist within groups, not merely between groups — a recognition that's crucial to avoiding new stereotypes as we dismantle old ones.
