Bridging the Divides: Humility, Honesty, Humanity
Podcast #140 — Aired December 20, 2017

What if our differences aren’t an obstacle to overcome, but rather a resource for new ways of solving problems? This week on BetterWorldians Radio, we’re speaking with Dr. Kenneth Gergen, an expert on a way of thinking called Social Constructionism, a theory of communication based on humility, honesty, and acknowledging our common humanity. Dr. Gergen will discuss how conflict can be an opportunity to come together and cooperate to make the world a better place.
