NOTE: Participation in this session will give you credit for attending a program as part of the 2024 Leadership Summit Series.

Interested in learning from someone with a very different perspective? Tired of unnecessary polarization & animosity? Let’s do something about it! Leadership researchers have found that conversations across difference are one of the best ways for students to develop as leaders. This highly interactive workshop will help participants develop the conversational skills to better understand those with very different viewpoints. There will be opportunities to explore 4 qualities of good questions, as well as how & why we change our minds. Participants will craft a series of engaging questions that they can use in a wide variety of situations. There will also be the opportunity to practice essential conversational skills to increase our understand across difference.

NOTE: This session will count towards your participation in the 2024 Leadership Summit Series. Students who participate in 3 or more Leadership Summit Series programs, will receive a certificate, Mason 360 digital badge, and summit swag. For more info, visit:
