Register today to join us on Wednesday, May 18 for “Deliberative Dialogues: New program really has people talking!” Check-in starts at 11:45 and the event takes place from 12 to 1 p.m.
The Deliberative Dialogue program launched at Illinois State University (ISU) in 2020 and has grown exponentially since then. This model of conversation removes polarizing positions and one-sided lectures by simply asking participants to investigate specific solutions to an issue through the help of an issue guide and facilitator. By equipping individuals with the necessary skills to engage in meaningful conversation, Deliberative Dialogues foster democratic participation and an appreciation for finding solutions to society’s biggest and most complex challenges.
Harriett Steinbach and Joshua Crockett, both from ISU’s Center for Civic Engagement, will walk us through the history of the program, its purpose in depolarizing the political climate, and how we can get involved.
