Our Rules of Engagement are the

foundation for the Bridge 

During discussions:

  • We use facts as a basis for our discussion

  • We ask open ended questions

  • We engage with empathy and avoid using labels or characterizing groups by politics, peoples, or ideas

  • We control our behavior and dialogue to disagree respectfully

  • We become comfortable with ambiguity – The best stuff happens in the grey area!

  • Attempt to find common ground (even a small patch of land)

 

 

Beyond the talks:

  • Be okay with letting go: Let the emotions you stored during the conversation, relax and reflect on what you may have learned from others

  • We evolve – Our ideas and our practices

bridge: noun; a structure that connects and is intended to reconcile or form a connection between two things

From everything man erects and builds in his urge for living, nothing in my eyes is better and more valuable than bridges. They are more important than houses, more sacred than shrines.  Belonging to everyone and being equal to everyone, useful, always built with a sense, on the spot where most human needs are crossing, they are more durable than other buildings and they do not serve for anything secret or bad. 
Ivo Andric,  Nobel Laureate
