We currently see the realities of racial inequality that often spark debates but not thoughtful conversations. Deliberative dialogue comes from understanding and unity yet avoids the response to diminish, devalue or take away from another’s thoughts, ideas and experiences.
Consider the conversations swirling around in your environment. Is it productive? Are you open and willing to do the work and experience confusion and discomfort? This type of communication stems from a place of understanding and leads to education.
