COVID-19: A WeListen Staff Discussion

WeListen December 2020 WeListen December 2020
WeListen December 2020
This WeListen session is open to all UM staff members. All voices and views are welcome and the Zoom link for this event will be shared once you've RSVP'd.

RSVP here:

We will discuss COVID-19 as the global pandemic impacts the lives and livelihood of people across the world. Our discussion will focus on policy, both implemented and proposed, at the federal and state level and small-group time will be dedicated to a deep dive into the day-to-day implications of COVID-19.

Our aim is to bring liberals, conservatives, libertarians- everyone across the political spectrum- together for constructive conversation. The goal of WeListen discussions is not to debate or argue, but to understand the views and values of others and to learn from their perspectives. The session will begin with a brief content presentation to provide a basic understanding of the topic. No specific level of knowledge is required to participate in WeListen discussions.

By participating in WeListen sessions, staff members will:
- Expand understanding of a prominent political topic
- Practice discussing difficult topics with others,
- Gain openness to new ideas and perspectives,
- Learn to productively challenge an idea, and
- Form a sense of community among fellow staff members.

This event is supported by the WeListen Staff Series planning committee with members from the Ginsberg Center, the International Institute, LSA Psychology and Michigan Medicine.
