BYU Law School’s Conflict Resolution Center brings Respect + Rebellion to Brigham Young this fall.

Facilitating their conversation will be 2016 presidential candidate Evan McMullin. They’ll share their unique insights into why gridlock rules Washington and how we might solve the crisis. Seating is limited, so please reserve your seat today by clicking “register” above.

Political conversations are entirely predictable these days – the feuding sides refuse to engage in meaningful, respectful, hard-fought disagreement, and problem solving – instead lobbing grenades at “the enemy” from far enough away that we can demonize our foe and imply foul intent for ratings (see cable news, 24/7).

That’s what makes our special guests (now real life friends) thoroughly riveting: they are former rivals who defied the trend and actually worked together on issues about which we’re told there’s no possible collaboration – and that we’re intractably divided. This put them both so much at odds with the status quo, that it resulted in them being former Congressmen…but it also means they can now share the unvarnished truth with you about what’s broken and how we might fix it. You’ll never have an opportunity to get a more intimate inside look at Washington from those in the know.

The Transformational Power of the Outward Mindset

This interactive workshop explores a shift to an outward mindset and equips participants with tools to build self-awareness, accountability, and collaboration – moving from an inward mindset (a myopic focus on personal objectives) to an outward mindset (taking into account one’s impact on others). Sounds like something we could use a little more of in America?
