Event Details

We often engage in discussions around challenging topics without employing the tenets of effective, intentional, and positive dialogue.

This workshop, presented by Dy'an Marinos from the office of Equity & Inclusion at the University of Cincinnati, offers tips and strategies to participants for facilitating difficult conversations around “hot button” issues. The interactive components of this workshop are designed to enhance understanding of respectful communication, addressing conflict to avoid destructive speech and behavior, and encouraging honest dialogue while remaining civil with classmates and colleagues.

Light bites and wine will be provided from 5:00-5:30, educators are welcome to use this time for networking. Teacher Workshops are FREE for teachers and education students. Space is limited and reservations are required.
