Professor at Vanderbilt University
Jessica Kennedy strives to conduct research that makes an impact, and I love the lessons she shared today.
Our country is becoming more polarized over important issues, including issues of DEI. However, historically our country was united around the goal of equality of opportunity, specifically for people with similar skills and abilities. By focusing on the areas we agree about, we may be able to return to a place where we work together to create a stable society where everyone can thrive.
In summary, sometimes we should exit situations that are bad for us. But other times we should work together to find common ground.
It’s a simple idea. Please take it seriously.
