‘10 Tips for Managing Conflict’ topic at AAUW virtual event Feb. 13

Open to public


The public is invited to attend the American Association of University Women Del Mar-Leucadia Branch virtual program “10 Tips for Managing Conflict” on Saturday, Feb. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon. Kathryn Shade, senior program manager for the National Conflict Resolution Center, will discuss how to bridge the current climate of polarization in families and across the political divide, and how to restore civil conversations with those with whom we disagree. She will explain NCRC’s Code of Civil Discourse with its belief that respectful and constructive airing of different points of view is critical to successful dialogue. This will include how to manage conflict in our relationships with friends, relatives and neighbors, as well as in our national discourse.
