Intercultural Dialogues

Broadening minds, one conversation at a time.

Dialogues are different from discussions or debates. Engaging in a dialogue requires a unique conversational skill that promotes openness, curiosity and learning.

The purpose of a dialogue is to unearth a diversity of perspectives, actively engage in differences and promote change through action. Our intercultural dialogue sessions are a practice ground to develop dialoguing skills. While our sessions tackle social issues, as a participant, you'll also learn to:

  • Learn to listen empathetically
  • Share your perspectives authentically
  • Exercise openness and curiosity
  • Engage with differences constructively
  • Illuminate and be illuminated by diversity
  • Take meaningful action locally
