Institute for Emerging Issues, Civic Conversations: North Carolinians are feeling more disconnected than ever and they want to do something about it. We’re inviting people from different backgrounds and perspectives to spend time together in real and rich conversation in which all listen first to understand. Such conversations across difference are all too rare amidst the rising rancor and deepening division plaguing society. But we seek to make them the norm in North Carolina. The conversations may be casual, one-on-one or in groups; we ask that you talk about a topic that is concerning you or your community. The goal is to reconnect in good faith with fellow North Carolinians, learn from each other, build relationships and identify opportunities to bridge divides in our state.
OIED workshops: We provide training to create and maintain a campus community that is inclusive and welcoming for all.
