[ Building Pathways to Understanding ] is a community dialogue series that aims to provide a safe, shared informal learning space for people from different communities to unpack the beliefs and values that drive the way we build our communities and to take a closer look at the stories we tell ourselves and/or have been told about the way society “has to be.”
This month, we’ll be talking about [ COMMUNITY ].
Up to 10 different people will be selected to take an active part of each dialogue, though there will also be room for people who just want to listen. We aim to have a diverse group of participants so that each dialogue will include and reflect different perspectives and experiences. For the time being, the dialogues will be hosted virtually through Zoom.
Check out the [ SPRING 2021 Calendar ] for dates & topics.
The series aims to provide a space for people to learn about the diversity of experiences of other people and to engage meaningfully with people outside of their own communities. It also intends to provide an opportunity for people to talk and learn about policy issues in an accessible way so that our decision making — not just as people in our daily lives, but as voters and as decision-makers embedded in organizations, businesses, government agencies, and other institutions — is informed by self-awareness about our own experiences and understanding of others’ experiences.
