When emotions are high and stakes are higher, how can we engage in civil controversy? We can begin by really understanding our personal “why”, what we value, and our responses to stress and communication triggers. Join in this interactive discussion and toolkit building workshop to grow your ability to know* and practice your values, even when faced with crucial moments of conflict. Participants will have the chance to better understand techniques to explore their values in action, to stay in dialogue when things get challenging, and to apply their values and best self when engaging in the community.

*Each participant will leave with access to the Values in Action Character Values Inventory.
