We Are Building a Culture of Change
The progressive movement is having some tough conversations right now. It’s not easy. But it’s good. And it’s about time.
It’s not easy, because we must go beyond the patterns that have gotten us this far, but won’t take us further.
It’s good because if we face this moment with heart and strength, we'll come through stronger than ever.
It’s about time, because now more than ever, we need a progressive movement that is unstoppable.
Social Change Begins at the Ground Level
A movement is as strong as the relationships that hold it together.
But differences within social change organizations often turn into cultures of mistrust, disrespect, and burn out.
We can do so much better. We can be stronger. We can be unstoppable.
And we begin with a single, courageous conversation.
"How do we build cultures that power social change?"
At Dialogue Lab, we begin with this question.
The answer is not in glossing over differences. Nor is it burying our heads in the sand and hoping things magically get better. And it's definitely not in treating each other like confederate statues, where the move is the take down.
We begin to find the answers by having that first tough, honest, and liberating conversation. And then we keep at it, with growing confidence and skill.
Through our work with leaders, communities, and organizations, we are building a Culture of Change.
