Think of the last time you tried to talk to someone who didn’t agree with you about an important issue. How did it go?

Often, working toward a future where humans and nature can thrive gets stuck in the noisy traffic jam of competing ideas, priorities, and ideologies. Join MIT Sloan’s Jason Jay (senior lecturer and director, MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative) for an interactive workshop based on his book Breaking Through Gridlock: The Power of Conversation in a Polarized World.

You will learn concepts and strategies for moving beyond “preaching to the choir” and leading change across lines to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come.
