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!

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!
“After all, the ordinary hero hiding in each of us is often the most powerful catalyst for change.” ~ Tate Taylor
We all have a spark within and we choose every day how we will or will not use our spark. In our NCDD community, we spark conversations–dialogues that change hearts and minds and steadily change the world. Our sparks can be small or big, but we must work intentionally to ensure that the sparks catch fire. What do I mean by this? I mean that it is up to us, as those working firsthand in the creations of spaces for dialogue and deliberation, that we do not work in isolation. Like the catalysts in science, we must interact with others to create the chemistry worth having in our world.
NCDD is excited to announce that we will be co-presenting a session at the Public Library Association Conference in Philadelphia, PA on Friday, March 23rd at 2:00pm. Along with our partners at the American Library Association Public Program’s Office, NCDD will be talking with public librarians about the Libraries Transforming Communities: Models for Change initiative and will help them further explore how libraries can engage their communities through dialogue and deliberation. The session is open to all attendees.
