OVERCOME “US VS. THEM” MENTALITY

Building Bridges Instead of Walls

2020 will take a prominent place in our history as humanity has been tested at a global scale and to the deepest level at its core. A deadly pandemic, divisive politics, deep-rooted social injustice, devasting economic hardship, and traumatizing isolation have severed our connections and destroyed our sense of belonging. The mental, emotional, and social health of humanity have been severely traumatized. As we cautiously approach rebuilding our new norms in 2021, we must be mindful of how we may reconnect with the familiar while connecting with the new and different. One of the biggest challenges we must tackle first is dismantling the “Us vs Them” mindset, which keeps us divided politically, culturally, socially, and personally. Our differences do not have to divide us. When our differences are tolerated, we collectively produce sub-par outcomes. When our differences are accepted, we are merely meeting the status quo. However, when our differences are genuinely appreciated, we thrive. We can build an inclusive culture when we openly and intentionally appreciate our differences. This program provides insightful and practical perspectives on creating meaningful and inclusive connections in our communities through intentional practices of authentic empathy. Dismantling the “Us vs Them” mindset will create inclusive working and living environments, empowering each individual to thrive physically, socially, emotionally, and mentally.
