Have you noticed that our communities are increasingly divided along racial, political, religious and class lines? Social media and narrowed media feeds allow people to gravitate toward echo chambers that reinforce their preexisting beliefs, it has become harder for people within the same community to communicate across difference. 

 

Agenda:

6:00 p.m. - 6:45 p.m. | Movie Screening of  "Bring it to the Table"
6:45 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. | Social "Hour"
7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. | Panel Discussion

 

This year’s SHSI event will focus on techniques for constructively discussing our differences and getting to agreement (or agreeing not to agree) without damaging relationships. This event will begin with a screening of the documentary Bring It to the Table by Julie Winokur, an Emmy-nominated director. The film addresses the importance of civil discourse as it displays people from varied backgrounds sharing their political opinions. Join us on October 14th as we learn how to build bridges with civil communication.

 

Our panelists will include Tanya Blackmon, Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Officer (CDIEO) at Novant Health, Dr. Kinneil Coltman, Chief Community and External Affairs Officer of Atrium Health, Becca Kearl, Managing Partner, Living Room Conversations, Gil McGregor, BCSEF Podcast Host and Motivational Speaker, and Kama Pierce, Chief Operating Officer of The Levine Museum of the New South. The event will be moderated by Octavia Seawell, WIF Member and Principal of OZS Consulting.

 

Movie screening is not required to attend the event, though we believe attendees will benefit more richly from the panel conversation if they have watched the film beforehand. In addition to making the screening available just before the panel, we are looking into making a private streaming options available before October 14 to those who sign up for the event in advance. Stay tuned.

 

Special thanks to Moore & Van Allen for their generous support.
