How do you talk to someone you just cannot agree with? In today’s digital age, it is easier than ever to build walls around yourself. Join Talking Across the Divide author and social activist Justin Lee as he speaks about breaking through barriers that make people resist different opinions. He will share skills that can help members of the JWU community understand the person on the other side of the argument and provide tools needed to have a productive conversation.
This program is taking place in Pepsi Forum, Wales Hall, at 11:30am Tuesday, October 8. RSVP is required to Kevin DeJesus, assistant professor in the College of Arts & Sciences.
Co-sponsored by Community Standards & Conduct, the John Hazen White College of Arts & Sciences, Gender Equity Center and the BRIDGE.
