SDHC, in cooperation with longtime SDHC scholar and educator, Lawrence Diggs, has developed a program to unite people during divisive times through genuine conversation.
Brainstorming: The Human Connection is a weekly discussion series led by Diggs with a focus on forging human relationships. This program is inspired by the guiding question, “How can we remove the invisible barriers that lead to misunderstandings and even tragedy?”
Audience participation is encouraged. Please note that meetings are recorded – If you would prefer not to be on the recording, you can attend and listen with your video and/or microphone turned off, or participate via Facebook.
“I get a deep and ecstatic satisfaction from people learning even one little thing about themselves or overcoming some block that was keeping them from progress in their lives. I believe these brainstorming discussions can lead to better understandings between people.” – L. Diggs
