The Art of Working Together With Open Hearts and Open Minds: Conversations That Matter
Thursday, May 30, 2013 at 9:00 AM - Friday, May 31, 2013 at 5:00 PM (EDT)
Dignity: What does it take to work with our differences instead of in spite of them?
Integrity: What might it look like to work for transformation instead of small change?
Wisdom: What more is possible when we come out of our silos, let go of labels and discover new ways to move forward together?
