Co-host: Bridging Differences Initiative

Key Take Aways: 

  • Be an open-minded and patient listener.
  • Invite people to reflect and share something about themselves to build trust as the basis for further dialogue or conversation.
  • Choose words carefully to bridge differences.
  • Seek dialogue with people outside your usual group to strengthen the community.
  • Dialogue promotes inclusiveness when we share the complexity of our life experiences.
  • We can speak about our hopes and concerns in ways that can be understood by others.

We especially want to thank Drs. Rob Mack and Joyce Sackey, Tufts Chief Diversity Officers and co-chairs of Bridging Differences, for co-hosting the first Tufts Table, and to Drs. Jonathan Garlick and Diane Ryan and their student facilitators for supporting the event.
