A simple way for people to come together for rich and meaningful conversations in hopes of making Noblesville a more welcoming and inclusive community.
A Simple Format
Change how we view and relate to others based on increased understanding and build new lasting relationships.
What People Are Saying
The entire process of these conversations is perfectly and brilliantly designed to solve the problem and foster the health we need in society simply by their very structure.
It was valuable to hear from others in the community and hear why they have formed the beliefs that they hold.
I strongly suggest people in the community sit in on these structured conversations to learn how to have the conversations organically with neighbors near and far in Noblesville
Join a Conversation
Conversation is critical to relationships and an important way to connect, care and create. Want to be part of a conversation among your neighbors, friends, or colleagues?
Change begins with how and when we engage with others.
Listen with a desire to understand and learn more about others.
Question your assumptions and suspend judgment so you can hear different perspectives.
Be okay with feeling uncomfortable as you encounter people with different backgrounds, cultures, and values.
With respect and civility, engage with others by valuing and honoring others’ viewpoints experiences.
