Courageous Conversations: Cultivating Curiosity, Barrington's White House, Wednesday, 13. November 2019

We are born with wide eyes of wonder—but this curiosity can fade with age. How do we keep our fervor for learning, understanding and adapting to the changing world around us? How can we check our tendencies toward stubborn certainty, false confidence or confirmation bias? How do we remain open-minded to new ideas and divergent perspectives? Join us for the third monthly session of A Year of Courageous Conversations at Barrington’s White House, led by guest expert Dr. Arin N. Reeves.
