Remote Access Only
Engaging in productive dialogue across differences is a skill that requires knowledge and practice. Rather than focus on how to win debates, we’ll explore how to engage in constructive conversations and establish the credibility one needs to persuade others. Zachary Schaffer and Abir Maliyanker (BJ’s shaliah) will discuss how interpersonal conflict arises, the human nature behind polarization, and how we can depolarize communities in conflict and engage in civil discourse across divides. Recommended for all BJ member teens, Grades 8-12.In light of the evolving situation with the coronavirus and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to transition this event to remote access only. Details on how to participate will be provided to those registered.
