How do we talk to each other in the midst of adversity? What's between the words?

How many times have you had to edit, defend, or withdraw yourself from conversations as you expressed who you are? Regardless of your race, gender, religious, political or economic status, we’re all inhaling racial and cultural smog. On Monday, April 23 at 6:30pm, you're invited to a facilitated session with clear ground rules and exercises that will provide an opportunity for you to examine your perceptions about others, openly discuss cultural conflict using curiosity, and use compassionate engagement to de-escalate conflict. Michael Eatman is the Director of Community Life at Pike School. An educator for more than twenty years, he co-partners with organizations to help faculty, staff, administrators and executive leaders engage in difficult conversations with compassion.
