Event at Creighton University
#BlackLivesMatter, #MeToo, and More: Standing up for Justice at CU (March 1st, 2018)
Movements like #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo continue to garner media attention throughout the world and have shaken our moral fiber. What makes people tap into their moral courage and inner strength to stand up for social injustice, inequity, and abuse? What is our social responsibility as members of a Jesuit university to speak up in constructive ways?
This panel, moderated by Prof. Bernie Mayer, faculty in the Negotiation and Conflict Resolution (NCR) Program, will focus on what people at Creighton University can do and are doing on campus to surface and address issues of social justice, which takes awareness and courage. For details and (free) registration, see here.
Negotiation in the News
