In recent years, our society has become increasingly divided. Rather than appreciating our differences, all too often, people are viewing the world through an "us versus them" lens. The Constructive Dialogue Institute works to address these issues by translating the best behavioral science research into practicable, scalable, and evidence-based tools that equip people with the mindset and skill set to communicate and collaborate across differences. Our tools are built for use in many contexts, including high schools, colleges, and workplaces.
