From Awareness to Action: Creating Bridges Across Differences
Every week until September 18, 2018
For many people, attempting to connect with others across differences can feel akin to walking through a minefield.
Even one’s best attempts may inadvertently trigger an unexpected explosion, especially when dealing with situations such as:
- Striving to understand someone’s culture or behavior when it’s vastly different from your own;
- Getting scared whenever you think of telling a supervisor you disagree;
- Sharing the pain and discomfort around old, deep disagreements you’ve previously been silent about within your primary relationship; or
- Wondering how to respond when you hear how happy the group you just joined is to have a young / black / male / gay / Latina (insert triggering descriptor) person now in the group.
