Our work in dialogue is grounded by commitments to:

  • Attend to how power shows up in discursive spaces and to design dialogue experiences with
    power and positionality in mind.

  • Attend to how all voices, particularly those from under-appreciated or marginalized
    backgrounds, can be equitably heard, recognized and respected.

  • Advance critical learning about diversity, equity and inclusion issues through dialogue

  • Work to deepen relationships across social, cultural and power differences through dialogue

  • Approach dialogue as a pedagogical practice that centers students’ and staff members’
    personal and collective agency.

  • Approach dialogue as a pathway for collaboratively addressing organizational policies,
    processes, and practices, in order to advance intersectional equity.

  • Continue learning and evolving as a program through critical research, learning, reflection and assessment of our practices.
