The courage to collaborate

At a time when America is becoming more polarized and people with different views can’t talk with each other, we’re missing an opportunity to solve society’s most complex problems. This requires courage—the courage to embrace our differences, engage with each other, and collaborate on our best opportunities for progress.

Embracing Difference is Necessary for Progress

Great discoveries—whether scientific or social—are not born from a single thought. The innovations that improve our lives come from many diverse people engaging with and challenging one another to do better.

Diversity Takes Courage

It's easy to retreat, react with anger, or call for censorship when we meet ideas that we disagree with. But having the courage to transform fear into curiosity makes it possible for us to learn from one another to grow from our differences.

We Don’t Have to Agree

Disagreements are inevitable. Engaging with opposing viewpoints doesn't mean you have to change your mind. Entering conversations with respect for each other's inherent dignity gives us the opportunity to learn from disagreements.
