Get your dinner tickets to join Dr. Kurt Gray + our very own Christine White: Intellectual Humility in a Polarized World | Tuesday, May 10, 6:30 pm
Join us for our May 10 Dinner at the Square with Dr. Kurt Gray of UNC Chapel Hill and our very own Executive Director Christine White who will moderate this timely and intriguing discussion about intellectual humility. Simply put, we'll be exploring the importance of knowing you might be wrong (gasp! yes, even you), why this is so critical to address, and what we can do about it to help build human connections and bridge our divides.
Learn more about Kurt and his "very Village Square" work here.
Kurt says our brains are designed to notice patterns and make generalizations to keep us safe rather than discovering truth with accuracy. Finding comfort in our knowledge, even if it's wrong, leads us to overgeneralize what we think we know in unproductive ways. And the harsh reality is that this describes everyone, including you. That's why you and your friends must join us for this pivotal program!
Grab your tickets to explore what we might achieve together if we remember that we don't know everything and restore intellectual humility to our lives. What a great way to start getting our groove back!
What's on the dinner menu? Lively Cafe's Fran Doxsee will be serving up chicken Marbella (with tofu Marbella as the veggie option), red-skinned mashed potatoes, broccoli, and yeast rolls, with peanut butter brownies and chewy orange bars for dessert!
