    caring, sharing and expert in their fields. What a treat to be able to engage
    so deeply with this wonderful community."

  5. "Where the heck have you all been my whole career?”


    I found myself thinking and saying such things repeatedly at the National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation, which was held outside of Boston two weeks ago. I only learned about the host group, the National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation (NCDD), a few months earlier, but by the time its members came to Massachusetts for their biannual gathering I felt like I was meeting long-lost cousins."

  9. The theme for NCDD 2016 was Bridging Our Divides, where we focused on lifting up our stories about healing the bitter partisan divide - along with many other persistent gaps in our society - and focused on how, contrary to the popular narrative about intransigence across divisions, regular people are creating paths that move us forward together in addressing our nation’s and society’s biggest issues.
  10. "It was the theme, Bridging Our Divides, that hooked us. How timely. My colleague, Todd Erickson, and I have known of the NCDD community since it was founded and finally felt compelled to attend. (I know, what took us so long!)

    With over 2,300 members around the globe and 350+ showing up in Boston last week, the NCDD has come of age as "a network innovators who bring people together across divides to tackle today’s toughest challenges." It was uplifting to be among a few hundred charged-up people for a few days who were cracking the code on how to get along; how to bring people together in order to understand each other and bridge their differences.


    Can there be any more important work?" - Lenny Lind
