The sixth annual Day of Dialogue & Action took place on both the Danforth and Medical Campuses Feb. 18 and 19 — two full days of talks, panel discussions and workshops that challenged and inspired the more than 700 faculty, staff and students who participated.
Incomes in St. Louis are rising — for white residents. Development is booming — in the central corridor. And the population is rising — in select neighborhoods. “It really is a tale of two cities,” said Henry S. Webber, executive vice chancellor. At the Day of Dialogue & Action on Wednesday, Feb. 19, Webber and Chancellor Andrew D. Martin will ask participants for their ideas about ways to improve the region.
The annual Day of Dialogue & Action hosts “Mindfulness: Disrupting Biases With Compassion and Inspiring Positive Change,” unique sessions where participants will learn mindfulness skills and explore how mindfulness can lead to compassion.
The process of truly connecting with others — no matter their differences — can be challenging, even difficult at times. Columnist and filmmaker Aisha Sultan will explore the theme of embracing others during her upcoming keynote for the university’s annual Day of Dialogue & Action on Feb. 18.
