Intergroup Dialogue Institute

Do you struggle to talk with students or co-workers about issues such as #BlackLivesMatter and the Orlando shootings?  Are you interested in leading dialogues around race/ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic class and/or sexual identity but don’t know where to start?

August 26-28, Stetson University is hosting its first, three-day Intergroup Dialogue Institute. Consultants Dr. Deirdre Johnston and Dr. Lorna Jarvis Hernandez from Hope College will train faculty and staff to engage “difficult dialogues” around issues of difference. Participants will learn to engage dialogues and lead difficult discussions in the classroom and the workplace. They will be able to demonstrate greater intergroup understanding and become more effective collaborators.

For more information, contact Kimberly Flint-Hamilton, Elisabeth Poeter, or Savannah-Jane Griffin. Up to 24 can be accommodated – RSVP by Monday, Aug. 22.
