The Courage to Collaborate
We’re working to understand what drives intolerance and the best ways to cure it.
By supporting scholars undertaking research on why people often fear the “other,” finding new tools to encourage discussion when we don’t agree, and elevating stories about people already bridging even the deepest divides, we can empower individuals to embrace differences as opportunities to learn, grow, and change the world for the better.
Research of Consequence
Scientists and students are reaching across institutional and disciplinary divides to understand why people are wired to reject those who are different. Understanding the roots of intolerance will help us learn how to cure it.
Tools that Work
We can learn to react with curiosity rather than fear when confronted with people from different cultures, geographies, and worldviews. The best courageous collaborations allow differences to become opportunities to learn and change the world for the better.
Stories that Inspire
These courageous collaborators are tackling difficult issues with empathy, creativity, and intelligence in an increasingly polarized climate. Use these stories to launch your own collaborations and take action in your life.
