Working with groups with diverse backgrounds and different points of view creates unique challenges. Bringing these different voices together is a necessary art in everything from staff projects and board meetings to volunteer recruitment and advocacy efforts. Managed well, this diversity becomes a rich resource for new ideas and solutions. Different Perspectives, New Ideas helps participants work more effectively in teams - from assembling the best groups to creating an environment where challenging new ideas are welcome and heard.

Ensure nonconforming opinions are voiced and considered by the team
