Steve del Rosso was with Hewlett Foundation, right?
Tamra Pearson d'Estree

Suzanne Ghais
47:20
Question more for Tamra since I know about her book and her course on evaluation—how does Action Evaluation fit into the larger world of peacebuilding evaluation? How is it similar to and distinct from other evaluation approaches?
Mary Chavez Rudolph
47:28
Were there goals of constituents/stakeholders that conflicted? If so, what do you do with that?
David Gleiser
53:30
On form of "evaluation" is popular vote... as you probably know in the Colombian Peace-Process after four and a half years of negotiations the agreements were submitted to popular vote via referendum... the majority voted "no" ... how can this kind of evaluation be prevented, improved?
Andrés Álvarez Castañeda

Keyword: humorPower of humor to 1. Open the heart, accept difficult subject 2. Bind different culturesAs new theater director (virtual theater co) focusing on global plays, trying through humor, theater, getting people to understand each other. Expanding to include people of different identities.

- UNDERSTANDING- Currently at Korbel- Before that – school administrator- Discipline – getting to the point where the student understands what s/he did and that someone was harmed, and s/he should take ownership and that there have to be consequences- That they come to understand and feel rewarded by the learning – that they are teaching themselves – that they are learning from within
Ron Fisher
01:31:20
From one Teller:
Leanna Jasek-Rysdahl
01:31:35
Multifaceted goalsConflict resolution- usually focuses on one topic. In a specific project, individuals usually have assumptions about the individuals they are working with and their motivations. However, as the project rolled on, they found out that these individuals actually have a myriad of reasons. Unfortunately, in the post-COVID pandemic world, it is easy to forget about nuance
Robin Rossenfeld
01:31:59
Empathy - learning to be with family member better and more completely
Raisa Wells
01:32:29
passion word: kindnesscore insight: in family discipline growing up, there was a lack of kindness and it caused dialogue to shut down. Where there's kindness, there's opportunity for dialogue
Jordan Coulter
01:32:43
Passion point/word: reassuring presence & safetyAnecdote: went hiking and encountered a difficult passage, and a friend reached out to help, felt he was a reassuring presence and a sense of safety. Want to help build that sense of reassuring presence for the society at large to help manage polarization and conflict.
Tamra Pearson d'Estree
01:32:49
passion word: engage
Caitlin Sheridan
01:33:16
Passion point/Word: Convey• Hearing concerns, issues, & anxieties and bringing and translating it to leaders• Shuttle diplomacy• Had to convey a new perspective that hadn’t been heard- had personal meaning to her with her own family• Bringing information/concerns in ways people can hear right now, and bringing the changes back to people• Takes time to shift
Tamra Pearson d'Estree
01:33:18
....seeing Turkish woman identify with Kurdish woman's struggle
Maggie Lea

Word: "Together" -- an existing project has morphed into a more COVID-focused project to help people come together and look out for each other during this uniquely challenging time. There is a conflict in Boulder right now between people who are outside recreating: those who are wearing masks and those who aren't; those who are keeping safe six feet distance and those who aren't. Reflection is that we must come "together" to stabilize and look to recovery
Aleesha McDowell
01:33:29
Hi all,
Molly Tepper
01:33:43
From one person in our session:Keywords: sustainable-survivableConcerned about the survivability of the human race/animal world. Learning from Thomas Homer Dixon who discusses resource wars, they note that people need to make a decision to engage in major changes to avoid extinction. These conflicts are expressed in intergroup conflicts, something we are very well prepared to address.
Suzanne Ghais
01:33:47
@David Gleiser—it’s interesting that you conceptualize a referendum as a form of evaluation—I guess it is. It’s also a form of participation. But it’s an adversarial one—you have to come down on one side or the other—binary. I’d say be careful in the use of referenda, and also what Jay says, work on the bottom up, broad civil society participation in the peace process
Wendy Foxmyn

Passion word: Opportunities
Aleesha McDowell

Hi all,
Giovanni Rodriguez
01:35:30
Word/phrase: Why does it matter?Subject was involved helping to bridge differences between Jews and African Americans in her communityAfter training with Jay, she began asking people who have been hurt, “why does it matter.” This helped the other side understand, and it led to resolutionsWord: CollaborationThe subject recently was involved in helping a non-profit accomodate the ED’s request to be less micro-managed. Through collaboration with the board, the NGO came up with a resolution
Aleesha McDowell
01:35:35
Thanks for the opportunity! I have to attend another meeting in about 15 minutes
Leanna Jasek-Rysdahl

Open lines10 week dialogue program just finished, was ongoing when COVID began. The original topic of the dialogue got thrown out the window, but the dialogue became the space to hold understanding and share information. This is a real foundation for solidarity and a platform to jump off of for planning. At a time when tensions are being pulled further, there is even more importance of space being held.
Mary Chavez Rudolph
01:36:05
Keywords: Deeper DivideOur field to take responsibility for focusing on the deep, personal experiences people are having so that policy is much more thoughtful and sensitive ... anecdote about participating in a CDC discussion about a new vaccine to be introduced to all children and hearing from a grandmother whose grandchild had died of a disease for which there is was a vaccine and a mother who believed her child was injured by a vaccine.
Maggie Lea
01:37:35
Word: "Authority" -- many years ago, individual was chosen to facilitate a workshop with indigenous people and peasants to figure out a way to live more harmoniously together. The facilitator suggested an exercise where the participants would get into pairs and represent each other. He noticed that one pair seemed to excel at the exercise and asked them why. One of the participants indicated that his partner agreed with almost everything he shared. It was revealed that the partner did not play the part of the other. When the facilitator asked why, one of the participants used a stick to hit the facilitator -saying that he was an elder and that he had the right to discipline the facilitator and that he didn't have to play by the facilitator's rules.
Giovanni Rodriguez
01:38:26
Word: humorThe subject is involved in using humor in a new remote theater project to create empathy between different cultures
Armine Baltazar

Our group’s consensus goal:
Suzanne Ghais
02:02:01
Catalyze communication and dialogue across divides, encouraging understanding of the validity and the “why” of conflicting positions, so as to move forward towards solutions
Jordan Coulter
02:02:33
Group 4 Goal Statement: Provide containers or spaces for people to learn to take in new information by modeling active listening and constructive dialogue.
Maggie Lea
02:04:22

Molly Tepper
02:05:14
Thank you for this - I have to go.. I pleasure to see you/meet you all. Stay well, be safe.. It went well! thanks!

Goal 1 (Caitlin, Giovanni, Tim, Mary should edit) Use this moment of pandemic to interfere with the us v. them, good/bad, right/wrong framing to reframe in ways that convey interdependence and the reality that businesses can only succeed if customers feel safe and that we can only prevent virus spread by being careful and thinking of the health of others
Giovanni Rodriguez
02:07:45
Michael — sounds good
Michael Hughes
02:08:07
Action for Group 1 - step into the media’s framing of the either/or to reframe toward interdependence
Ron Fisher
02:08:37
Group 3: Goal: Conflict Resolution should provide tools (including dialogue, active listening, problem solving) for educating and working together across differences, especially ideological and economic, to learn about other peoples' views, so that we can assist citizens in creating and implementing policies that will enable us to collaborate in addressing immediate and continuing crises.
Giovanni Rodriguez
02:09:25
Group one action: join existing media forums that are designed to align oppositional sides.
Suzanne Ghais

This was great, thank you so much!
Giovanni Rodriguez
02:14:55
Need to leave now. Thanks Jay, Tamra et al.
Michael Hughes
02:15:11
Jay - how important is it in these processes to return to the single words and images and how do you keep that fresh over time?
Wendy Foxmyn
02:15:57
Thank you. This was a boost to my spirit, as a long-time practitioner, to be with young, smart people commited to this practice that works.
Michael Hughes
02:16:16
