Can Politics be Civil in 2020?
The 2020 presidential election and the partisan divide over the COVID-19 pandemic and race relations in America have shined a spotlight on what we have known for some time: American politics is increasingly polarized, our political communication is disrespectful, and thoughtful dialogue feels scarce. Join us as we discuss how to debate, disagree, and dig into meaningful engagement with critical issues.

Carrie Zimmerman: Unconscious Bias & Identity
Each of us have lenses through which we see ourselves and others. We’ll explore how filters such as age, race, gender, ability, and socioeconomic access inform our words, actions, and decisions.
*Carrie Zimmerman has over 18 years experience consulting and administration work in higher education and the non-profit sector. For 10 years she worked as the Director of the First Year Experience, Assistant Dean of Student Development, and Director of Transitions. Carrie founded Uncommon Programs and Consulting 8 years ago to address growing needs within universities to build communities of inclusivity and diversity, rebuild structures and systems that don't support equitable and just environments, and support each member of the community. She has extensive experience leading strategic planning retreats, facilitating training sessions, and guiding difficult conversations. Her goal is to help empower administrators, governing boards, staff, faculty and students to thrive in their careers, embrace their own unique gifts, and be courageous in the face of injustice, bias, and hate. In addition to her work in Higher Education, she has run a resource center for the homeless, and summer camps for teenagers. She has led hundreds of retreats and workshops, guided college trips to four continents and has spoken to thousands of students, faculty, and administrators in her career.
Carrie is a proud graduate of Vanderbilt University and Texas Christian University.
