Institute for Developing Across Differences

“First, do no harm…” What’s really required? [9 Apr 2024 webinar/info session]

What’s really required for effective Developing Across Differences work?  How do we avoid doing more harm than good when time, circumstances and other considerations are less than ideal?

Join us for a 45-minute conversation on this timely topic + info session with 2024 Developing Across Differences Learning Lab & Community Week faculty members Dr. Darla Deardorff and Drs. Michaela Carrière on Tuesday, 9 April at 5PM CEST / 11AM EDT.   See your local time here.

Developing across differences (DAD) is an ongoing — lifelong, even — process. Yet we live in a time of quick fixes and check-box solutions.

With this in mind, we ask the experts:

What does it take to have truly meaningful interventions . . . and if and when is the better option to decline an opportunity rather than engage and potentially cause “more harm”?
