This year’s event, We’re Both Right: Successful Conversations to Bridge the Divide, will provide participants with tools and techniques to have difficult yet powerful conversations on issues of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, physical and mental ability – conversations that often divide us. Unlike other events that feature lectures, this colloquium will move quickly from theory to application through group work, exercises and reflection. Throughout the day participants will practice what they learn and develop strategies to engage in more meaningful conversations of hot topics. The Colloquium will be led by Darlene Floyd, nationally-known workshop presenter and speaker. Over the past 25 years, Ms. Floyd has conducted workshops on communications, conflict management and diversity for tens of thousands of attendees in hundreds of organizations. In the past, participants have found the Conflict Resolution Colloquia to be educational and engaging. This year’s event with its focus on hands-on activities will have very practical applications.
