As President DeGioia reminded us in a message to the Georgetown community on November 29, 2016, as an institution and as a community, “we will continue to engage in constructive dialogue, maintain our commitment to freedom of speech, and hold each other to the very highest standards of civility and respect.” These commitments may sound different than they did prior to the 2016 election. How do we build common ground amid increased polarization? How can we learn to hold constructive dialogue with those whose experiences, identities, and perspectives are not only different from but seem to challenge or threaten our own? This year’s Doyle Engaging Difference Symposium will explore the challenges of fortifying democracy and flourishing amid the turbulence created by the 2016 election. The symposium will bring together a diverse panel of thought leaders to discuss this timely issue, followed by an audience discussion to continue the conversation.
Please RSVP here, as seating is limited.
This event is co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS).
This is part of the Doyle Engaging Difference Program, which is a university-wide collaboration between the Berkley Center and CNDLS designed to deepen the university's own commitment to tolerance and diversity and enhance global awareness of the challenges and opportunities of an era of increasing interconnectedness. The Doyle Program is made possible by a generous gift from alumnus and Chairman of the Board of Directors William J. Doyle (C'72).
