Asking questions and sharing ideas without the risk of censure.
Allowing diverse peoples with diverse perspectives to come together and challenge claims, deepen understanding, and engage in dialogue.
Discussing ideas and perspectives across lines of difference that help us better understand our own viewpoints and those of others.
Compassion for others
Keeping in mind that conversations happen in relation to one other. Demonstrating respect for one another in how we talk and listen to each other strengthens these relationships and helps build community for all.
