Agreeing to Disagree: Luncheon and Community Dialogue
March 20, 2017 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
Agreeing to disagree
Now more than ever, we need to learn from and with each other. I invite you to participate in a catered luncheon and discussion on Monday, March 20, hosted by the MIT Libraries and the Institute Community and Equity Office. We will address these questions:
- In recent months, there has been much talk about the need to heal our divided – and divisive – country. How can people with strong opinions remain open to dissent, discussion, and disagreement?
- Are there opinions or perspectives that have no place in a respectful, caring community? How can we engage, respectfully and productively, in an exchange of ideas with others who don’t agree with us, while still holding fast to our own beliefs?
People of all social and political viewpoints are welcome.
