    Bridging Divides: Beyond Agree to Disagree
    Wednesday, April 18
    10 – 11 a.m. | Bollinger Conference Center (K100)
    We all have our own opinions and beliefs. But how do you react when yours differ from someone else’s? Wired tendencies make it easy to dismiss or put down different viewpoints. What if you could respectfully engage instead? This vital professional and personal skill is one you can develop. Join us as we experiment with stepping outside our comfort zones and challenging our biases. We’ll actively work on connecting with openness and curiosity.
