Conversations About and Across Difference

Conversations About and Across Difference

Originating in 2016, this lunch series asks participants to contemplate one or more questions on topics that engage us in conversation about identity, inclusion, and belonging, to name a few. This program encourages active listening, providing opportunities to learn more about others, and more about oneself.
