In case you missed it! We have an exciting new offering from NCDD just for our Members. NCDD will be hosting monthly Member Calls on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 2pm Eastern/11am Pacific. Our first call is coming up on Wednesday, January 19th!

These calls are meant to provide an opportunity for members to come together and share exciting announcements with one another, as well as give us as a community additional opportunities to connect, explore best practices, discuss challenges, and collaborate.
If you have a project, opportunity, or question to share with your fellow members, reach out to Courtney@ncdd.org. We'll provide some time in each meeting for brief announcements, but if you want to carve out some extra time on a future call, let's talk!
CDD is excited to host an event for up-and-coming young professionals seeking more information about the field of dialogue and deliberation. This 75-minute event will be held on Thursday, February 10, 2022 at 7 PM EST/4 PM PST. Register today!
This event will include four NCDD member panelists who have a variety of career experiences in dialogue, deliberation, and public engagement: Roshan Bliss, Logan Steppan, Cristin Brawner, and Malia Josephine. Their experiences span the public, private, NGO, and government sectors.
It can often be challenging to know where to start in building a career in the diverse field of dialogue and deliberation. The intention of this event is for young professionals to network and learn more about where they can start once they graduate, or how to build their career with a dialogue and deliberation focus if they have already started. Please join us to hear about our panelists' experiences and the breadth of opportunities out there.
This session is FREE and open to all interested in helping people and communities engage through dialogue and deliberation. Register today to join us!
The National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation (NCDD) is a network of innovators who bring people together across divides to discuss, decide, and take action together effectively on today’s toughest issues. NCDD serves as a gathering place, a resource center, a news source, and a facilitative leader for this vital community of practice. Learn more about us here!
Earlier this week, NCDD hosted a special post-election Confab Call during which over fifty of our members and affiliates had a rich, inspiring, and for some, therapeutic conversation about what kind of work people in the dialogue and deliberation field are doing to address this post-election moment.
The call was part of our ongoing #BridgingOurDivides campaign, during which we’ve been encouraging our members to share about the work happening in our field that’s aimed at fostering bridge building, and to share resources that can build capacity to move forward together despite differences. The Confab Call was its own kind of resource, and if you missed the call, you can hear about all the great projects, insights, and resources that were discussed during it by reading over the discussion and links from the call’s chat transcription here. NCDD members who missed this event can watch the recording by clicking here. But there are many more resources we want to share with you all today.
