Learn how to hold meaningful and engaging two-way conversations on issues of public importance.
How do you hold space for a group to deeply explore a complex issue? What role can a facilitator take on to support the best possible conversation? Dialogue is both an art and a science that requires practice, innovation and mindfulness. With this in mind, we share tips and lessons learned from our own experience as well as guidance and resources from others doing great work in this field.
