DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership
June 22, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
The DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership: Join us and the Better Arguments Project for this engaging and interactive Zoom meeting on June 22! In this workshop, we will reflect on the role of arguments in a healthy democracy and will introduce the three dimensions and five principles of a Better Argument. These provide the foundation for productive and meaningful conversations, despite disagreement.
This workshop features: 1) A proven framework for healthy dialogue and productive disagreement. 2) Concrete tips for putting Better Arguments principles into practice. 3) Reflections about the opportunities and challenges related to bridging our divides. 4) Content relating Better Arguments principles to roles in the community and organizational leadership. 5) Zoom meeting format with multiple breakouts scheduled for small group discussion.
The DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership is excited to collaborate with the Aspen Institute Citizenship and American Identity Program, Facing History and Ourselves, and Allstate to bring The Better Arguments Project to DeKalb County!
Special thank you to Kishwaukee College Foundation and the First Midwest Bank Fund, that supports nonprofit training, for their partnership.
